Learning Path #8: Crochet Pattern Sourcing
From online to in-hand, discover the best places to find (and store) your crochet patterns!
Do you hoard crochet patterns in your email? Is your internet browser full of bookmarked patterns and sources? Maybe, you download & print all patterns to keep them handy. There is a better system, and we can show you.
Knowing where crochet patterns can be found is a key hunting tactic to fine-tune, but managing patterns you accumulate is just as important a tactic to learn. Ravelry is a key topic in this course because it's free to join and use, and is an amazing search & library database for the yarn world! By the end of this course, you'll better understand Ravelry, and will be able to manage all your patterns in one easy-to-use location!
This course includes the following 4 lessons:
- Pattern Sourcing & Management: Cutting through the clutter and chaos
- Ravelry: Profile & Notebook Settings
- Ravelry: Search Functions
- Ravelry: Advanced Tagging
I learned to crochet before grade school and have had a passion for the art ever since. Back in 2009, I began publishing patterns that fit my style and my work has been featured in various craft and crochet communities since. Crochet has always been a passion of mine, and I’m proud to call it my career with platforms like Design Wars Challenge (Founder), Happily Hooked Magazine (Content), The Pattern Pack (Editor).
In 2015, I created the American Crochet Association, where we are dedicated to helping crocheters to help themselves. Tidbits? I’m always up for a bit of traveling, I’m very fond of black licorice, I’m quite good at Scrabble, and I can do 10 push-ups!
