1- I’ll show you how to upload a pattern on the crochet forum. Before doing it, there are some rules about writing the title correctly that you may learn:
Topic titles format:
• Company name- Designer name - Pattern name
Ex.: A morning Cup of Jo Creations- Josephine Wu – Baby Panda
• For patterns which has a number
Company name - Pattern number- Pattern name
Ex.: Red Heart Yarn – WT1741- Cutest Little Owl
• For magazines, Pamphlets or Booklets
Magazine name- Issue Name- Issue Date
Designer Name- Booklet Number or Pattern number- Book or Pattern Name
Exs.: Magic of Crochet – Issue 29
Love of Crochet- Fall 2013
Leisure Arts – 2749 – Corner Bookmarks to crochet
Please, respect the word order stated above.
2- The crochet forum has been slip into two forums:
3- I’ll show you how to upload a crochet pattern. The first thing you need to do is to search for the pattern you will upload to see if it’s already on the forum. I would like to upload “Amigurumi Cadillac Sofa by AmiEggs”. I’ll search for the following keywords: amigurumi cadillac sofa, Cadillac sofa and Emieggs
4- However, if I search for “Cadillac sofa”, see what will happen:
5- The pattern I would like to post has already been posted by someone. So, I need to choose a pattern that nobody has posted yet!
If you find a duplicate thread, please report it using the report button on the pattern page. Please, include a link to where the original pattern was shared. Your reports are greatly appreciated!
6- I have a pattern called “Ela Amigurumi girl pattern by Studio Karma Pattern”. I’ll search for it to see whether it’s already on the forum or not.
When I type the keyword “Ela” there is 1000 threads related to it.
They are too many for me to see so I will use the advanced search to search in specific forums ( CrochetPatterns, Crochet Magazines / Books)
By using the Advanced search feature, there will be less results related to the keyword I chose. After changing the keyword to “amigurumi girl pattern”, “girl pattern”, “Ela amigurumi girl pattern” and “Studio Karma Pattern” I saw that nobody has posted this pattern on the forum yet so I will do it now.
According to the crochet rules for Titles format (Company - designer name – Pattern name), as this pattern doesn’t have any numbers, the right way of writing the title would be: “Studio Karma Patterns – Cihan Sahin– Ela amigurumi girl pattern”. The designer’s name isn’t on this pattern so I searched for it on the Internet. Please, do not write the words together (like this: Karmapatterns – CihanSahin) or in capital letters ( like this: KARMAPATTERNS – CIHAN SAHIN) because it may cause problems in the search.
Note1:About the kind of pattern I’m uploading, there is only one option for me to choose. It is on “Toys and Hobbies= softies”. A lot of people have also been choosing “Pet= toy”.
If I want to post a piece of clothing for a dog, I would fill out the category “Pet = clothing”
As the same way, if I would like to post a Crochet bone (this is a toy for the dog), I would fill out the category “Pet = toy” because that’s the toy for an animal!
It is a good idea to be familiar with the options in English. For instance, a “puppet” is not the same as “softies”.
Puppet = A movable model of a person or animal that is typically moved either by strings controlled from above or by a hand inside it.
Note2: This is about Yarn Weight:
Then choose the file on your computer and wait a while until the upload finishes.
This pattern is not free but I just want 5 coins for it.
If you want to change the “Read permission”, do it before clicking on “Ok”. The maximum Read permission allowed is “level 2 = 30”.
After you post a pattern, it will be checked out by the moderator. It will be approved soon!
