This site is really cool if you are a crafter. I love to crochet and there are so many great patterns on here. There are many great free ones, but I wish there were a little more that were free. Also, there have been a few instances where the links they have didn't go to the actual pattern, which sucks when you have decided on your next project. Overall it is a good site though.
Love it! The only down side is you can spend HOURS trolling patterns, groups, yarn etc. My friend calls it "knitting porn"......lol.
I love that they have so many different crochet and knit patterns. The only problem is that it seems they are starting to get greedy. I have been noticing patterns go from free to costing money. However, their prices aren't bad and you get the pattern right away.
My favourite website! So much useful information here; if you're interested in knitting, there are free patterns, forums, a great community of knitters.
This website is amazing. It has changed my life forever. If you are a knitter or crocheter and you haven't tried it yet, I cannot recommend it enough. It is an amazing database of yarns, patterns and projects. I use it to keep track of my yarn, my queue of patterns I'd like to knit. You can enter all the knitting books and magazines you own and then search within your own library from the comfort of your computer. For someone with a lot of yarn and a lot of knitting magazines this is extremely useful. It's free, the people who run it are lovely and the forums are really helpful too.
What are you waiting for? Go try it out.
I absolutely LOVE ravelry. It's the #1 resource for knitters and crocheters, it's got a huge directory of patterns (free and you can even buy online pdfs from designers, books, magazines, etc) and yarns as well. People can review or comment on patterns and yarns which is uber helpful. Patterns and yarns are also organized by color, gauge, type, etc so it's indispensable for finding a variety of items. If I want to find a pattern to knit - say a scarf for males in worsted weight, ravelry is the place to search. They also have a handy way to list yarn for the purposes of trading or selling, which I've found useful in destashing. Destashing groups also help with getting rid of yarn and magazines. Basically, ravelry can do no wrong!
