To sweeten the deal, we’ve gone through and updated the older patterns to include the layers feature, as well as the international and copy shop files. How do you get the updated copies from previous purchases? That’s easy!
- If you purchased from PatternsforPirates.com or Craftsy, log into your accounts and download the updated file. It’s already in there, waiting for you!
- If you purchased from Etsy, email a copy of your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org and the Pirate crew will email you with your updated files.
But wait, there’s more! We wanted to create a friendly pirate-y competition with our P4P Cardi Week!
Between tomorrow and Saturday, January 28, sew up a Patterns for Pirates cardigan using one of our hacks, or by keeping the pattern as-is. Share your photo with us on Instagram or in our Facebook group and use the tag#P4PCardiWeek We will pick our favorite and the winner will win a free P4P pattern of choice AND be featured on this blog. Fun right?
To make it even better we have put all the cardigan patterns in the shop on sale all week (no code needed)!
Now get out there and sew some cardigans, matey!
