2. After you have placed an order for a download, it is fairly simple to get it. Most of the time right after you pay you will be taken to the page where you can pick up your download.
Reality is that sometimes that doesn't happen.
If you are not taken to the page where you can pick up your download read the
"Can't figure out how to get your download?"
section on this page.
When you click on that "
Download" button next to the Downloadable item.
The PDF file should open right away. With some browsers, it is easier/better to right click and choose "
Open in new Window or Tab".

3. Your browser will open a program that looks like this!

If you look where the arrow is pointing, there is a little blue square with and arrow pointing down on it, that is the "Save Button". Right next to the on the right is the "Print" button.  You can go ahead and print it right away. 
After you print, but before you close that window, you may want to save it to your computer so you can print it again if your original gets destroyed.
Read the "
Saving to your desktop" below.

If by chance you have an older computer it may open a program that looks like this! Click on the
"Save" button to start the download.

Saving to your desktop!!

This part isn't about the e-patterns, just helpful info if you like downloading patterns. I like to make a folder on my desktop to keep all my patterns in. To do this, all you need do is, right click on any empty space on your desktop and then click on New, then click Folder, then you can type in the name you want the folder to have, like "Patterns". If you want to change the name of the Folder, you can right click on the Folder anytime, and then click rename. Then you can just drag and drop stuff into that folder. Like all the patterns that you download.
