At Knitcrate, we’re releasing a whopping six new patterns every month. With a mix of knitting and crochet patterns, sock and small scale accessories all the way up to tops and shawls, that’s a lot of work to ask from our designers and technical editors. While they all do a spectacular job, errata, or errors, happen from time to time, and we answer customer’s questions (and any discovered oopsies) with quick and speedy pattern updates.
To make sure you’re always getting the most recently updated version of a pattern, follow these easy steps!
Download on Ravelry
Our patterns give you the option to download onto your computer or device, but also to download to your Ravelry account. Even if you don’t spend much time on the site, this is the best way to make sure you’ll always know if a pattern is updated (and make sure you have the most current version). When you get your cards, download your pattern onto your Ravelry account and it will always be stored in your library.
When you open the Library section of your Notebook, you’ll see a page like this:
See that ‘6 updates available’ in the left sidebar? Click that button to see which patterns have updates (before you begin your project or ask a question, this is a great place to start). The button will take you to a page where it shows all of the changes made, and gives you the option to click ‘update now’ on any patterns that have had new versions updated.
Check your Ravelry Messages & Emails
Whenever we update, we send out an email via Ravelry to anyone who has purchased or downloaded the pattern. You’ll get an update in your email inbox from your Ravelry account, as well as an update in your Ravelry mail, letting you know what was updated and which version is current.
Join us in the Forums
If you’re having a problem and aren’t sure if it’s user error or written error, the forums are a great place to go! We have a great Ravelry group where there is an active thread for each and every shipment. Pop in and see if any other members are experiencing the same issues (and if they’ve already been resolved in the thread)!
