Your Cart is Empty

October 28, 2020

Being able to fall in love with a knitwear design, find the knitting pattern that was used to make it and purchase it online yourself to make your own is a truly amazing thing. So many knitting patterns are now sold digitally (including all of ours!) and the convenience of being able to cast on straight away as well as access patterns by independent designers is something that knitters everywhere are very thankful for!

If you're new to knitting or have never bought a digital pattern from us before, you'll be pleased to know the process is easy, and we've put together this handy guide to help.

Buying a pattern

Find all our patterns here. Use the drop down menus on the left to search for projects of a particular type, by thickness of yarn or by a particular technique they feature. If you're looking for a particular pattern that you know has been part of a collection like Knitworthy, you can also search by collection here.

Have you chosen your next project? On the pattern page, click 'add to cart.'

The pattern is now saved in your cart, and you can continue shopping for other patterns or yarn without clicking back a page. See the contents of your cart anytime by hovering over the basket icon in the top right corner.

Once you're ready, hover over or click on your cart to reach the checkout page. View the terms and conditions, and then click 'checkout' to make your purchase. You can then either choose 'express checkout' when paying by Paypal or Google Pay, or add in your details to pay by card or Paypal. Creating an account is a good idea, as in the future it'll be easy to view past orders, access all digital purchases, and sign up for our nurture rewards programme.

Click to review your order, and then if you're happy, click 'complete order.'

Once your purchase is complete, you'll be taken to a page which confirms the order details, and you'll find a blue button which you can click to download your pattern. Almost there!

Your pattern should now be waiting for you in your downloads, or other similar folder. The files are always called the pattern name, followed by the version number, eg 'Musselburgh_v1.1' Our patterns have no set number of downloads, or expire after an amount of time. You'll always be able to access your pattern, and click the 'download' button as often as you like. Patterns are delivered automatically as soon as you purchase, so there's no delay while you wait for someone to view your order and press a button to send it!

You'll also receive an email from us confirming your order, and including a link to take you to the website to download the pattern.


On the download and order confirmation page you'll also see a link to 'add pattern(s) to your Ravelry library'. Clicking this link will take you to the Ravelry website and if you're already logged in your pattern will now be saved in your library.

Discount codes and gift vouchers

Do you have a discount code? Or are you the lucky recipient of a gift voucher? If you've received a discount code through our newsletter or other promotion, don't forget to enter it! You'll find the place to do that by clicking on your basket, and entering the details in the 'gift card or discount code' box and clicking 'apply' before making the payment.

Buying multiple patterns

If there are a few patterns on your list it's easy to purchase them at one time. Simply add all the patterns you'd like to your cart before clicking through to checkout. After purchasing your pattern files will be listed as separate buttons to click through and download, which you can always return to anytime.

Next steps

Have you got your pattern ready? We've written on the blog about the features and layout of our patterns which could be useful if you're about to start.

Our website is full of tutorials and tips to help you with your project, and you can find those here. Happy knitting!
