Do you knit or crochet? Do you have a large assortment of yarn? Are you looking for new and exciting knit or crochet patterns? Do you design patterns? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you want to sign up a free Ravelry membership.

I can’t begin to tell you how much of a fan I am of this site. Since I picked my crochet back up this Christmas to make presents, I’ve been at Ravelry just about every day. You do have to sign up for a membership before you can browse the site, it’s free to join – and the community is great!

My favorite feature is the Stash. The Stash allows you to keep track of all the yarn you have in your home. I found a small yarn store in my dining room this winter and I am so happy to have a way to organize it once and then be able to refer to what’s online to know what I have. I won’t have to go dig through my yarn bag, or drawer. I can select projects, and go see what yarn I have, and even where I am storing it. The Stash is also a great way for you to sell yarn that you don’t need or like anymore. People can browse your stash and if they see something they need to finish up a project they can contact you about it. It’s awesome!

My second favorite feature of the site is the pattern search. You can find tons, and I’m not kidding I mean tons, of free patterns. You can even set the search up so that it only finds free patterns. You can also narrow it even further so that it only finds free crochet or free knit patterns. If you design patterns you can sell them or share them free here as well.

My third favorite feature – and really they’re all competing with each other for my love – is the project queue. As you are searching through the patterns on the site you can add them to your queue, so you never run out of anything to do!

Another great feature is that you can add the projects that you are working on and keep track of them via your Project page. Just click add, fill out the form, it will look for the pattern on Ravelry and then you can keep track of your progress. This has really helped me stay on track and involved in my projects.

So are you wondering how you join?

To become a member click the Create an Account Now link underneath the sign in box. This will take you to page where you can input a working e-mail address and then click the Send Sign Up Link button. They will send an e-mail to the address you’ve provided, click that and you’ll be well on your way to a Ravelry account. You’ll have to create a username and password at that point.

If you want to friend me, I’m rawrpounce. Come on, break out those hooks and needles, and come craft with me! :)
