Accounts and Downloads

Creating a customer account is recommended, but not required when making a pattern purchase.

When you purchase a pattern, you will receive a link to download your pattern in three places:

1. After checkout on the "Thank You!" screen, as soon as your order is complete.

  • Desktop users: The "DOWNLOAD" button will appear in the Order Summary on the right-hand side of the screen.
  • Mobile users: Tap "Show order summary" at the top of your screen to see the "DOWNLOAD" button.

2. Via email (If it is not in your email inbox within moments of purchase, check your junk or spam folder. The download message will be from "The Chilly Dog" <>.)

3. The Order History section of your Customer Account will now include download links for patterns purchased after February 26, 2022.

Unfortunately, download links for patterns purchased before February 26, 2022, are no longer active. We will issue new download links if requested.

If you would like us to resend or re-issue a download link, please contact us. It is helpful if you include your name, the name of the pattern you purchased and if possible, your order number in your message.
