If you have never come across Ravelry.com before, then let me tell you, it’s one of the best resources online for knitters and crocheters. It is completely free to register and use and contains hundreds of thousands of patterns for knitters and crocheters, both free and paid.
There are so many patterns, it would take years to look at them all, so I have put together a little screenshot video to show you how to use the search function to use the filters to narrow things down when looking for the perfect pattern.
You might be looking for the pattern first so you know what yarn you need to buy, or you may have a special skein in your stash that you don’t know what to do with. Have a look at the video and hopefully you will see how easy it is to narrow down a search to find something right for you.
