ADD PATTERNS TO YOUR RAVELRY LIBRARY
Have you ever wished that you could add your pattern purchases placed through the Brooklyn Tweed webstore to your Ravelry library? Thanks to Casey and the awesome team at Ravelry, you can!
Here’s how it works:
After purchasing your pattern on brooklyntweed.com, click the “My Account” link at the top of the page. As you can see below, I’ve snagged a copy of Michele Wang’s versatile pattern Cadence:
To the far right of the pattern name, you will see the “Add to Ravelry” button. The very first time you click that button, you will be taken to Ravelry’s login page. Once you have logged in to Ravelry, you will see an authorization page where you can give brooklyntweed.com permission to access your Ravelry library. The authorization page will look like this:
Click the “authorize” button to allow your Brooklyn Tweed pattern to be added to your Ravelry library. Once authorized, you will be taken back to your Brooklyn Tweed account page.
For future pattern transfers from your Brooklyn Tweed library to your Ravelry library, clicking the “Add to Ravelry” button from your brooklyntweed.com account as depicted above will send your PDF straight to your Ravelry library, no additional authorization needed.
Huzzah — that’s it! When you return to your Brooklyntweed.com account page, your “Available Downloads” section will look like this:
(Note that the spot where the “Add to Ravelry” button was previously listed now says “in Ravelry Library”.)
In Ravelry, your Brooklyn Tweed pattern will be available on your library shelf:
We love this special feature of the Brooklyntweed.com webstore and hope you will find it useful. If, however, you wish to de-authorize the link between Brooklyntweed.com and Ravelry, you can easily do so at any time by going to your Ravelry profile page (“about me” on your Ravelry projects page) and click on “edit your profile.” There, you will see the following:
To de-link your Ravelry account with Brooklyntweed.com, uncheck the box next to “brooklyntweed.com” and then click “save changes” at the bottom of the page. Once de-linked, all patterns previously added to your Ravelry library will stay on your shelves, and you can always re-authorize the website at any time by following the steps listed above.
In case you are wondering, adding a pattern to your Ravelry library will not count against the five-downloads-per-pattern limit that is in place on Brooklyntweed.com. In fact, since Ravelry offers unlimited downloads, adding your Brooklyntweed.com pattern purchases to your Ravelry library can serve as a good back-up storage option for your Brooklyn Tweed patterns. (If you ever do need your downloads count reset for patterns in your brooklyntweed.com library, please just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to reset that for you.)
