Our new features for designers:

Automatic yarn color highlighting (NEW for designers!)

Colorwork pattern? No problem. Set your yarn colors and names in your pattern’s materials list and we’ll take care of the rest. That includes automatically coloring your instructions. Just make sure you use the same yarn names throughout your pattern and… that’s it!

I love the new features and am excited to try them! I’m currently designing a tunisian crochet pillow pattern for charity and would love to do a craft along. My questions are:

  1. Can it be recorded so it’s accessible to those who buy the pattern later - or is it just live?

  2. Can larger more time consuming patterns be split up over several days on a craft along?

  3. How does one get on the schedule?


Thank you :purple_heart:
We would be very happy to help you host your craft along!

By default, craft alongs can be watched up to 5 days after they the live stream ended.
Alternatively, you may also link the video within your pattern. Simply click the media icon and the paste the youtube link to attach it to any line of your pattern. You can do so for tutorials, and also for pre-recorded craft alongs.

In terms of daily/weekly interactive craft alongs, we’ve got some amazing features in the pipeline to support that even further, but we can definitely help you set up an ongoing craft along even now.

Send us a private message with the details and a member of the team will help you move forward with your interactive craft along :star_struck:


I’m very excited to have found ribble! All the new features are amazing! Looking forward to everything


Thanks Mary and welcome to Ribblr! :purple_heart:



Are we able to stream more than one person on the CAL?
Could I do it with Streamyard, or a similar program?

Have a creative day,
Kim (Affordably Crafty)


Me too Mary!!

Ribblr has made pattern writing so much easier and accessible.


Hi Kim!

At the moment the CAL works with integrating live Youtube streams so you can use any software that supports Youtube, so it should be the majority of softwares! let us know if you are interested to host one :slight_smile:


I’ve just found Ribblr, too - still finding my way around, but really impressed so far…


Thank you Jacky and welcome to Ribblr! :purple_heart:


Thank you for the warm welcome! It looks an exciting place to be - I’m just learning my way around, and looking forward to getting familiar with all of the features :grinning:


There have been so many awesome new features added since I loaded my first pattern here! And it was already great! Can’t wait until I can find time (or maybe a magic wand???) so I can get all of my patterns loaded over here and spend more time on this platform! I love what you guys are doing! <3


Thank you so much! :purple_heart:
