Ravelry: Hook Up A Project
You've probably seen me ask people to 'Hook up' their projects on ravelry but many people are not sure what this is all about. I love it when people hook up because it's a great way for you to share pictures of the work you've done. I love to see what you've made that I very often will request permission to link your project pictures to my Ravelry pattern listings.
Hooking up on ravelry is a way for you to create a project on ravelry of the items you hook. You can upload yarn details, hook size, and even upload pictures. It's a great way to keep track of your wips (works in progress), ever sit a project down, maybe left a hook with it only to come back and have NO idea what hook it was because it seems to have walked? Keep all your projects in one place. Show off your work to the desingers! 😀
How to Hook Up..
To Hook up to any of my crochet patterns look for the hook up option at the bottom of each pattern. It looks like this.. the option is available on all pattern listings on Ravelry.
If you click on the button above it will take you to my Baby Alive Back Pack Carrier pattern. In the upper right hand corner you have a few options. You can add the pattern to your favourites and you can hook up.
When you click on the hook up option it allows you to create your own project, give your project a name and press the 'create this project' button.
Creating Your Project..
Each project will have a set of tabs in the upper right, you will start on your details tab.
Click on the 'edit project' button.
When editing your project you can edit all kinds of neat stuff like what type of yarn you used, hook size, when you started/finished the project, rate the yarn and the pattern, leave notes, notes are a great place to list any edits you've made to your own finished piece of work.
Click on the 'add photos' tab to add photos.
Who Can View your Ravelry Projects?
Make sure once you are done adding all the details to you project that you go back to the 'details' tab and click the share this button.
A pop up will appear, click 'share this page', you will have 3 options.
- Default - Ravelers only
- Invite - access with link
- Public - Visible to all
That about covers everything you need to know about Ravelry: Hook Up A Project. I can't wait to see what you Hook Up!
