Unable to download my PDF pattern

1. Use a Pc or a Mac 

You should download your pattern on a desktop or laptop computer, even if you bought your pattern with a smartphone or tablet. Mobile devices can’t open the ZIP file that contains your PDF files inside it.  

2. Did you receive the pattern download link? 

When you buy a Timeless Templates pattern, you’ll immediately get an email that contains the download link for your pattern and a link at the checkout. 

However, if you don’t receive an email shortly after you finish checkout please check :

  • Spam/Junk folders.
  • If using Googlemail check the Social and Promotions Tabs.
  • Always check your other email addresses just in case your browser auto-filled the wrong one.
  • Sometimes we simply mistype our email address (yes we’ve all done it!) If you still can’t find your download email then contact us. 
3. Downloading the file
You should always wait for your file to download completely before attempting to open them. Almost all of our downloadable files are in the “.zip” format and vary in size from pattern to pattern. Therefore depending on your internet speed and pattern file sizes the download cant take anything from a few seconds to a few minutes.
If for any reason the pattern file fails to download, the first thing is to try again. Once the file has downloaded you will need to “Unzip” the file.
