Advance search (NEW!)

Our search just got smarter. You can now search for a term, tag, pattern name, shop name, or even yarn type on all devices and filter your search using the new set of filters. You can also use the ‘sort by’ in conjunction with the filters.

Tunisian Crochet (NEW!)

Tunisian crochet just got upgraded with its very own category and interactive charts support!
Designers - you can now use our interactive charts builder to add Tunisian Crochet charts.

Gift patterns :gift: (NEW!)

The holiday season is upon us so it’s the perfect timing to introduce a new feature - gifting patterns! You can gift any user on Ribblr using their email address or username. Simply click the gift icon and enter their details. We’ll automatically email them to let them know what an awesome friend you are!

Send patterns to testers (NEW!)

This one is for our designers!
Apart from being able to gift your patterns, you can also send patterns to testers before publishing them. Go to your shop, click the settings icon next to any pattern and then click ‘Gift pattern.’ We’ll notify the tester that you’ve gifted them your pattern.

Sale price (NEW!)

Another great addition for the holiday season!
Designers - you can now run special sales on Ribblr.
Crafters - watch out for exclusive sales :label:

Follow friends (NEW!)

Some of you are already familiar with this new feature as we’ve released this one early.
You can now follow friends on the community! Simply search for a friend’s name/username or click on a user’s profile and then click the ‘Follow’ button.

Link to shops on the community (NEW!)

Finding shops has never been easier. To continue our support for independent designers and to help you discover shops easily, we’ve added direct links to shops on the community which appear on designers’ personal profiles (and profile cards).

Tag links (NEW!)

You can now click on any pattern tag to search for similar items.

Stitch tutorial automatic translation (NEW!)

We will now automatically show you the abbreviations list and video tutorials (found at the top of each craft category page) in your language, based on your language preference!

Awesome update! Very good timing too!

Just one accessibility thought, the movie/animation in this post is a visual trigger for me and I can’t pause/still it. It would be nice if animations like this can have a play and pause button. Thanks!

Thanks for the kind words and for letting us know that GIFs are an issue for you.
There’s no simple way to pause a GIF unfortunately, but we’ll definitely try to find a solution that works for everyone!
Have a great weekend :jack_o_lantern:

I usually don’t have issues with GIF but this one seems to be very visual heavy. It might be because I’m in dark mode that the contrast is also higher
