Frequently Asked Questions: Projects

  • Can I print or save a pattern as a PDF?
    • Yes, you can easily print or save using the PRINT button! If you’re on a desktop version of the site, you will find the Print icon in the right margin just below the Save to Favorites button. If you’re on a mobile version of the site, you will find the Print icon below the pattern and above the comments.
    • Follow the easy on-screen instructions to delete whichever parts of the pattern you don’t want to print or save. For example, you may decide to shorten the pattern by omitting certain images or the list of materials.
  • Where are patterns and projects on your site?
    • Our projects are all located under the menu heading "Create." Wherever you see Create, whether on the homepage or in the upper left corner of any page, click it to get to all our projects, or just click here right now! Many of our projects include free patterns, which you can also find by clicking "Free Patterns" in the top right hand corner of any page.
  • Why don't you rate the difficulty of your patterns?
    • We don't rate the difficulty of our patterns because we want people to feel free to try things that are "too hard" for them; we want to encourage people to discover that learning new techniques enriches the process of making; and we don't want to put people in a box that says, "You can make this but not this." We do try to describe the skills involved with a pattern so that customers know what they're getting into, but ultimately, we hope that you will take little leaps into the unknown and find that the satisfaction was worth the challenge! Remember, we're always here to help!
  • I am having a problem with one of your patterns. Can you help me?
    • Yes, we are always happy to help! You can either leave your question in the comments section of the project post and we'll get right back to you, or you can sign up for free 1-On-1 Project Help. Just click here to schedule a Zoom call with an expert from our team!
