Howto upload patterns on the crochet forum (Updated)
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:
2- The crochet forum has been split 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 is 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 is already on the forum or not.
When I type the keyword “Ela” there is 1000 threads related to it.
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's 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”
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.
Do not choose "other" for all categories. Choose only the one(s)which fit. Sometimes, it is possible to fill out one or two categories according to the pattern.
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”. Changing the read permission will not allow a certain group of users to download the pattern.
Read permission is divided into the following categories:
After you post a pattern, it will be checked out by the moderator. It will be approved soon!
