Help – The Download Period

Your patterns can be accessed on the Internet from any computer, tablet, iPad, or iPhone whilst your download licence is active. Just use your email address or username plus your password to log in to your account.

The patterns are supplied as a 12-month licence to download, save, and print for your personal use.

If you save a copy of the PDF pattern file to your computer you can use it for life as long as you don’t lose it and still have the software to open it.

If a file is lost after the download licence has expired a new licence will be required for resupply.

Tips for long-term use.

Back up a copy of the PDF pattern file to a separate hard drive, USB memory stick or cloud storage.

Keep a printed copy of the pattern on file. If your digital copy fails you can resort to a photocopy of the printed pricking pattern.
