If you prefer to have immediate access to your patterns, we have a couple of different types of downloadable patterns available for purchase.
If you're looking for vintage crochet and knitting patterns, as we reproduce vintage pattern leaflets, we publish the patterns on our Free Crochet Pattern and Free Knitting Pattern websites. You can print these patterns directly from the website for free.
Additionally, we've been turning the entire leaflet into a a convenient eBook that is immediately available as a download as soon as payment is received. For only $1.49 each, you can save the entire eBook to your computer's harddrive for easy access anytime you want it.
Browse through the Pattern eBooks we now have. We continue to add new eBooks every time we reproduce a new vintage leaflet.
Partnering with Leisure Arts has enabled us to bring you their collection of Leisure Arts downloadable ePatterns from their previous publications, many of them now out of print and very hard to find, but still much sought after!
Founded in 1971, Leisure Arts is one of the world's largest publishers of lifestyle and instructional materials. Through the years, Leisure Arts has published thousands of how-to books, leaflets, magazines, and other publications. LeisureArtsLibrary.com was established to give you access to Leisure Arts designs that are not available in print anymore.
Many of the downloadable designs at this site are from publications for which Leisure Arts no longer has inventory in their warehouse. Some downloads are special projects that have never been published in a traditional format. They have made available thousands of patterns from their archives.
Whatever type of project you're looking for and need right away, you're sure to find one available in one of our downloadable options.
Hundreds of free patterns available from copyright holders who have given us permission to reproduce them here for you, including Coats & Clark, Teresa Wentzler and Plaid Company. You are free to print and share all of these free patterns as many times as you'd like, but please be respectful of the copyright.
You are not allowed to profit in any way from the use of the patterns published on the Purple Kitty website without express written permission from the copyright holder. Copyright information can be found on each pattern page.
