As some of you have already figured out, it is almost impossible to login to your KnittingUniverse.com account and download a digital version (PDF) of one of our Knitter's Magazine back issue PDFs or one of our XRX Books PDFs directly onto your iPad or iPhone via the iOS Safari app.
We apologize for the inconvenience… but this is actually not entirely our fault. There appears to be an undocumented file size limit for PDFs that can be downloaded through the iOS version of Safari before it errors out. In our testing we were able to consistently get PDFs that were 60 Mb and smaller through Safari and successfully into another app (like iBooks or Acrobat Reader).
It is our fault that some of our PDFs are as large as they are. Our new Knit My Skirt PDF, for instance, is 129 Mb. We reduced that book as much as we could. But we decided not to compromise on quality.

What is STITCHES? STITCHES is a fiber experience for knitters and crocheters. It includes classes on topics from design to finishing with every topic in between. The STITCHES Market is a shopping experience you won't want to miss with vendors who come from across the United States and around the world to display the latest yarns and gadgets sure to inspire your creativity. The one-hour market sessions are designed to give you a taste of a topic to see if you want to pursue it further, and the free demonstrations and book signings occur for your enjoyment. If you want a more relaxed and in-depth experience, STITCHES ETC is for you. This two-day event occurs following the close of STITCHES. You have the opportunity to spend two days with a select teacher delving into a single topic and covering it in more depth than can happen during the regular STITCHES event. Gone are the distractions of shopping in the Market and the need to get to another class.
