Keeping up with designers

Just like everyone else, I have my favorite designers. I like to see what they’re up to and know when they’ve published a new design on Ravelry.

Tonight I thought I’d show you a nifty little trick on just how you can do that!

Log into Ravelry and click on the magnifying glass in the top menu. This is Ravelry’s search function.

This will open up the search screen. In the search bar, type the name of the designer that you’d like to follow… me, perhaps?

This will open yet another screen. At the very bottom, it reads, “Advanced Search.” Click “patterns.”

Once again, a new screen opens. Be sure to follow steps 1 – 4 as listed in the image below.

This will save the search and keep you updated on the designer’s latest work. Every time a designer you’re following has a new pattern, a little blue dot will appear near the magnifying glass, like this…

Click the magnifying glass and you will see which designers you’re following have new patterns. Click the designer name and you can sort by newest patterns.

And….VOILA!
