Ravelry profiles

Posted 15 Apr 2015 by JC

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 user icon and email icon icons, on each stitch pattern’s detail page, next to the contributor’s name:

Ravelry icons

Click the user icon icon, and you’ll be taken to the contributor’s profile page on Ravelry. Click the email icon 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 user icon icon. If it knows your Ravelry username as well, it’ll display the email icon icon too.

Enjoy!
