With nearly 2000 stitch patterns in its public collection, Stitch-Maps.com is all about creating and viewing stitch maps. But sometimes it’d be nice to connect with the person who contributed a stitch pattern: to ask a question, or make a comment, or just see what else they’ve done. This is where Ravelry comes in.
How many of you are on Ravelry? Lots, I bet. So you already know it’s a fabulous resource for the yarny community. To tie Stitch-Maps.com to that community, we now have and icons, on each stitch pattern’s detail page, next to the contributor’s name:
Click the icon, and you’ll be taken to the contributor’s profile page on Ravelry. Click the icon, and you’ll be able to send them a message.
But wait! For any of this to work, you have to provide Stitch-Maps.com with your Ravelry username. It’s easy:
- If you’re new to Stitch-Maps.com, you’ll be asked for your Ravelry username when you register a free account.
- If you already have an account at Stitch-Maps.com, log in, then select Update contact info from your personal menu in the upper-right corner of every page at Stitch-Maps.com. Enter your Ravelry username, and click “Submit.”
That’s all there is to it! If Stitch-Maps.com knows a contributor’s Ravelry username, it’ll display the icon. If it knows your Ravelry username as well, it’ll display the icon too.
