HOW TO DOWNLOAD A DIGITAL FILE ON ETSY:
Etsy sends an email when you purchase with a download link, though you should be able to access all of your purchased digital downloads at anytime through your Etsy account, just like you can do on Ravelry.
Sign in to Etsy.com and go to Your account.
Go to Purchases and reviews.
Next to the order, select Download Files. This goes to the Downloads page for all the files attached to your order.
The way to download your file is through your browser, not through the app. I find it easiest to do on a computer. It would be nice if Etsy made it possible to do through their app. Please let me know if you have any further issues and I will help.
