Have you ever been on LoveCrochet and wanted to save your favorite patterns somewhere awesome? You have, haven’t you? Well, we have the perfect solution!

If you’re anything like me, you have several WIPs lying around, three friends you’ve promised knits to, you’ve eyed up a new dreamy yarn for your next sweater, and you’re buzzing with ideas for future projects you can’t wait to make. Your mind has become like yarn spaghetti, and you’re losing track of what you’re making when and for who! But guys, it doesn’t need to be this way! It’s time to start saving these patterns somewhere and we have the perfect place. This of course, is the collections section of your very own LoveCrochet profile.

Creating your own collections allows you to save everything and anything you love on our site in your own personalized space. The collections section is the perfect way to organize the patterns you’re working on right now, and great for housing all of your wonderful ideas for the future. Your amazing collections will then be on display in their beautiful and inspirational glory.

Inspiration from the LoveCrochet team!

Create a complete visual explosion, like Jen has created here for her fall collection. With rugs, fashion and home decor aplenty, Jen’s collection will certainly inspire you to make your own collection of beautiful patterns.

Nina's everyday accessories collection is made up of sublime crochet bags that once seen, will become the must-haves of the season.

Natalia’s atmospheric collection of fall inspired crochet patterns is the one to get you motivated this leafy season. Made up of richly colored blankets, snuggly homewares and gorgeous fashion, Natalia's collection is one to inspire.

1

Get started! The first thing you’re going to need to do is create an account. You can personalize your profile with a picture and short bio - perhaps you can tell others why you love crochet or what you like to make.

2

Choose a theme. Collections aren’t just limited to patterns. Sort them by theme, style, season or mood. Make collections of sweater or sock patterns, create one that is just for your favorite merino wool yarns, go for one that is all in yellow - the sky and your creativity are your only limitations! You can save yarns and any accessories you may need to complete a project like crochet hooks, books, and various fastenings.

3

Find inspiration. Yay, you’re on board! Now it’s time to start browsing the site for patterns to add to your first collection. Find inspiration in our vintage-style crochet patterns, our adorable amigurumi and animal toy section, or see what everyone else is loving in our currently trending patterns. There is just so much to inspire you!

4

Save away. Once you’ve found something to add or you’ve already had something bookmarked on your computer (let’s be honest, you’ve got all of those tabs open), simply press the save button. From here a new window will appear with the option to ‘create new collection’ or ‘save to collection’. Choose your option and that’s it. Getting started is as easy as that!

Pro Tip

You can also add collections in your profile before you start browsing by going into the ‘my collections’ section.

5

Do go overboard! Now you’ve created you’re first board, there’s no stopping you! Create 10! Create 1000! Just keep creating and saving because that is what we love to see at LoveCrochet.
