How to add a pattern to ravelry

Your Ravelry library can be a great resource for you in keeping track of the patterns that you have and for storing Ravelry downloads. The most helpful part for me is that I can use it to help me remember all the different patterns I have on Ravelry, as well as in books and magazines. There is an “add to library” button on every pattern page, but the type of pattern determines what actually gets added to your library.

If the pattern is from a book or magazine, you will see this when you click “add to library”.
How to add a pattern to ravelry
You can then choose whether you want to add the full book/magazine or just the individual pattern to your library. This will not add the actual patterns to your library, only the information about the pattern or book.

If the pattern is a free Ravelry download, you will see this when you click “add to library”.
How to add a pattern to ravelry
This will add the actual pdf file to your library. You will be able to access it any time in the future by going to your notebook tab and clicking library.

If the pattern is a Ravelry download that is for sale, you will also see this when you click “add to library”
How to add a pattern to ravelry
But, with a purchased download, the pattern pdf will not be added to your library when you click “add to library”. It will only add the information about the pattern. You might want to use this if you purchased the pattern somewhere outside of Ravelry. In order to add the full pdf file, you need to click “buy now” on the pattern page instead. Buying the pattern will add the pdf file to your Ravelry library upon purchase.

You can always go remove something that you have added to your library by clicking on the image of the item in your library and choosing the delete button. So, feel free to play around with it so you can get the hang of how it works.

A big advantage to having a library that is up to date with all of the patterns that you have is that you can search the patterns that are in your library without going through your bookshelf or your pdf files. To do this, go to the advanced search and choose the “In my library” option under “Availability” on the left of the page.

Pick up any project and know where you are. With knitCompanion, markers stay in the same spot as you move around, zoom, scroll, and rotate your device. A very popular knitCompanion option is the inverted marker shown below. It dims the other instructions and helps your eyes easily find and stay focused on the current row, reduces eyestrain, and doesn’t obscure other colors and markups. Customize the look of your marker by changing the color and settings.

Works with Any Pattern

Knit (and craft!) what inspires you! With knitCompanion you are not limited to a few patterns, you can add ANY PATTERN to the app. knitCompanion links with Ravelry and supports share/open from any app or source.

Keeps Keys Handy

Almost all patterns are more than one page and needed information will often be on a different page. For example the key, legend, or abbreviations may not be on the same page as the instructions you are using, or not visible once you zoom in. This means flipping around to find different pieces of information. With knitCompanion you can keep a variety of different information handy no matter where it is in the pattern.

Highlights & Counters

I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time looking at crochet patterns… whether it’s to put together a collection for this site, find a pattern for someone who isn’t having any luck, or for my own crochet down time. Ravelry makes it easy to find the pattern you’re looking for – and everyday I talk to people who don’t know how to use it. So here’s how to use Ravelry to find a crochet or knit pattern – you’ll love it!

How to add a pattern to ravelry

First things first of course – you need a account! Don’t worry, it’s completely free. All you need is an email address.
How to add a pattern to ravelryOnce you’ve got your account set up, go to the Patterns tab at the top of any page. It’s the one the black arrow below is pointing at. From here, you can choose to search in several ways. To keep it simple here as we get started, click on the link the red arrow is pointing at – “pattern browser & advanced search.”
How to add a pattern to ravelry

This takes you to a page… with even more options! But we’ll take them one at a time. First, note the search bar at the top, that the black arrow is pointing at. If you know you’re looking for a something specific, in this case a hat, you can type “hat” right into the search bar. But don’t be too quick to hit the “search” button to the right! If it’s the name of a category, you’ll get a drop down menu, with options where you can further narrow it down!

How to add a pattern to ravelry

How to add a pattern to ravelry

From there, you can continue narrowing things down, using the filters along the left side of the screen – the left-most arrow points at where they begin. As you click on different options, they’ll show up at the top, where the right-most arrow is pointing. And you can cancel them here too, if you find you’ve narrowed things down so much you can’t find what you’re looking for – or if you change your mind.

Also note the small red arrow in the middle up there. That’s a drop down box that lets you change how the search results are sorted. You can choose from Most Popular, Most Recently Published, Best Match, and several other options!

How to add a pattern to ravelry

Here’s a closer look at the filters you’ll find along the left side…. SO MANY OPTIONS! Again, don’t let it overwhelm you! These are all really useful tools! Let’s say you want a crochet hat pattern that is free and uses 400 yds or less of worsted weight yarn, and is rated easy. You can use these options to completely narrow it down, and get exactly what you are looking for! (Assuming it’s available of course!)

So at this point hopefully you’ve spotted one or more patterns that you’re interested in. When you click on the name or the picture, you go to the pattern page. All the pattern pages have the same basic look.

Here’s the one for the Ups and Downs Crochet Slouchy Beanie. It’s a free pattern, available here on Moogly, so there are two places you can click to go to the pattern. But before you even click, you can see the yardage, yarn weight, hook size, how other people have rated the pattern, and you can use the tabs at the top to look at photos of projects other people have made using this pattern!

How to add a pattern to ravelry

The other case that’s most common with free patterns is that it’s a download available right on Ravelry. In this case, you’ll also have a couple of different places you can click – where either of the black arrows are pointing. Both will create a popup where you can download the pattern straight to your computer.

How to add a pattern to ravelry

And look where the small green arrow is pointing! If you make the pattern, you can click the “hook it” button to add it to your Ravelry notebook. The notebook is also pretty easy and intuitive you use – and a great way to keep track of the patterns you’ve made, and yarns you used to do so! If you want to save it for later, you can click on the little ♥ icon to add it to your favorites, or click on “add to queue” – it’s like free shopping!

If it’s a paid pattern available on Ravelry, you’ll also have a couple of options. You can click where the black arrow below is pointing, and buy it immediately, or you can look where the green arrow is pointing, and choose to buy it now, add it to your cart and keep shopping, or purchase it as a gift for another Ravelry member.

How to add a pattern to ravelry

If a pattern isn’t available for purchase through Ravelry, or available free on Rav or elsewhere, then odds are it’s from a magazine or book. Whenever possible, the info for purchasing the book or magazine is also included – magazines being a little trickier of course.

So if you haven’t joined Ravelry and started exploring, now is a great time. Remember, it’s 100% free to join and use… though I can’t guarantee it won’t inspire an increase to the yarn budget! I hope this quick tutorial helps you find the patterns you’re looking for – and ones you didn’t even know you needed!

This free crochet pattern is all about pinecones and how to make them easily and fast. I recently made an Advent Wreath which needed some pinecones to make it look even better.

This pattern is part of the above-mentioned Advent Wreath which was sponsored by Lion Brand Yarns who provided me with some free yarn. The yarn I used was Heartland and it was the best yarn for this project.

How to add a pattern to ravelry

This pattern is also part of the Advent Wreath Crochet Along . Be sure to check out the main page for that as well.

I absolutely love this yarn and it is from now on one of my favorite go-to yarns. It is so soft and easy to work with. And let me tell you the colors are incredible.

As this pattern is created for the Advent Wreath, please go to Ravelry and add the entire pattern to your Ravelry Favorites. This is also the place where you could purchase the entire pattern at once, which includes all 6 patterns of the Advent Wreath.

So, if you prefer an ad-free version of this pattern where the pictures are added separately to the back of the pattern (to save ink in case you just want to reference the pictures but not print them), you can purchase the pdf on Ravelry or Etsy below.

So, let me now tell you what you will need to make these awesome looking candles and how to make them very easily.

How to crochet a Pinecone

You will need (click to see which ones I used):

  • Lion Brand Heartland yarn
    • 1 skein of Sequoia (136-126)

    There are lots of ways to crochet a circle, but making one that is not wavy or wonky can be a challenge. Fortunately, there is a basic formula that will keep your crocheted circle flat. This crocheted circle uses the method of joining with a slip stitch at the end of each round. The alternative would be to create continuous rounds that lead to a spiral pattern rather than a circle. It’s a fairly quick and easy method, depending on how large of a circle you plan to make. You can use flat crocheted circles to make a variety of items, including doilies, placemats, coasters, and rugs.

    Watch Now: How to Crochet a Simple Circle

    What You’ll Need

    Equipment / Tools

    • Crochet hook


    • Yarn


    Round 1: Work Single Crochet Stitches to Form a Circle

    Begin with a slip knot and then two chain stitches. Then, make six single crochet stitches into the second chain from the hook. Slip stitch to join the end of the round.

    This circle begins with six single crochet stitches, but you can adjust that depending on the type of stitch you use. Use these general guidelines for the starting round:

    • Use six to 10 stitches in round one for single crochet.
    • Use eight to 12 stitches in round one for half double crochet.
    • Use 10 to 14 stitches in round one for double crochet.

    How to add a pattern to ravelry

    Round 2: Work 2 Single Crochet Stitches in Each Stitch

    For the second round of the circle, use two single crochet stitches per each stitch you already made. This will give you a total of 12 single crochet stitches for round two. (If you started with a different number of stitches, you should have twice as many stitches as round one.) Slip stitch to the first stitch to join.

    How to add a pattern to ravelry

    Round 3: Work a Pattern of Single Crochet Stitches

    For the third round, use two single crochet stitches for the next stitch, and then alternate between using one and two stitches. For a crochet circle that started with six single crochet stitches, you will end this round with 18 single crochet stitches. (For circles that started with other numbers of stitches, this round should have three times the number of stitches as the first round.) Slip stitch to the first stitch.

    How to add a pattern to ravelry

    Round 4: Work Another Single Crochet Stitch Pattern

    For the fourth round, use a single crochet stitch for the next stitch, then another single crochet stitch in the following stitch, and then two single crochet stitches in the next stitch. Repeat that pattern around the circle, and slip stitch to join to the first stitch.

    How to add a pattern to ravelry

    Continue Growing the Circle

    If you want to continue growing the circle, continue growing the pattern. For each round, add one more single crochet stitch before doing two single crochet stitches. For instance, to create the fifth round you would do a single crochet stitch in each of the first three stitches, followed by two single crochet stitches in the next stitch. And in round six, you would do a single crochet stitch in each of the first four stitches, followed by two single crochet stitches in the next stitch.

    You can end your crochet circle as soon as it’s large enough for you. If you want a circle that has a more finished edge, then you can slip stitch in each stitch all the way around. You can also add a scalloped border or other edging.
