What is a downloadable PDF pattern?

When a pattern comes in downloadable PDF format, it means that it is available electronically and you will not receive a paper version in the post.

A big benefit of this for you is that it allows you to get your pattern immediately after purchase. We will provide download links after checkout and in your order confirmation email. As well as this you can get your pattern any time from your Account area's "Pattern Library" section, which acts as an online library of your downloadable patterns.

You can view downloadable patterns on any device with a PDF reader installed, so this could be your computer, tablet, iPad or even your smart phone. Most computers will have Adobe PDF reader installed already.

If you have a printer set up with your computer you can print out your downloadable patterns and there are no restrictions on the number of times you can download, view or print them.

Supplying patterns in downloadable format means we can provide a much wider range of designs to inspire you, from the world's biggest and best brands and some of the most exciting and creative independent pattern designers.

    Hi Linda and Hermanus, I am afraid that we do not offer a translation service at this time.

    So these patterns are not in English? If not don't you think you should tell people that before they purchase them.

    Hi Tracy, you can see which language the patterns are available in on the product page. Almost all of our patterns are available in English. If you are not sure please do not hesitate to contact our Smiles Team for clarification.

    Google has a TRANSLATION APP... I came upon it when I had saved some PDF files on Pintrest. The patterns were in Russian. Long and behold, it worked! 💜

    Hi Kathleen, what a great tip :-) I think this may work best with charted patterns where the written instructions are minimal and limited to the number of repeats rather than more complicated cable or lace instructions.

    Hi I bought the pattern Sideways knit Angel Top and can't seem to get it right? Was there a mistake on the pattern?

    Hi Isabel, not all of our patterns are available in English (though almost all are) as we have international customers as well. The language of the pattern is included in the pattern information to the right of the picture on the pattern product page but If you are not sure of the pattern language please do not hesitate to get in touch.

    I have just purchased the rabbits 3.60. I know it's on my phone but I can't get it. How can I cancel this and get it on my computer which I have my printer set up.

    Hi Anne, If you log into your Loveknitting or Lovecrochet account on your PC you can download and save it there ready for printing in the usual way.

    Dear Natascha,
    Could you be so kind and tell me which needles exactly I have to use for this shawl? I'm confused as there if only information about the size of needles. And I really want to make this shawl for my auntie. She's in love with it :)
    Thank you in advance.
    Rina.
