Patterns on Craftsy are available to purchase via PayPal only, specifically. This ensures that the payments go directly to the designer for their pattern. The prices of patterns are determined by the designer, and they can choose to offer them for free or for a price.
You can only purchase patterns from independent designers on our full site using a browser, not on our mobile apps.
This is due to the way in which indie designers are paid via PayPal, which is not accessible via the app.
When you've found a paid pattern you'd like to pick up, simply click on the Add to Cart button (in orange). When you're ready to check out, click on the shopping cart icon in the top right corner, select Checkout, and be sure to click Checkout Marketplace items before entering your PayPal details to finish the purchase.
To pick up a free pattern, it is still necessary to complete the checkout process to add the pattern to your library to download.
Please note you must be a Craftsy member and be logged into your account to download any pattern. If you would like to download a pattern but aren't a member yet, you can join for free here and click Create Account.
