So, I remember back in the days before ravelry that Knitting Pattern Central was the greatest thing ever. It had a list of all the free patterns on the internet, and if I wanted to knit a hat, all I had to do was go to the page on hats and open every single link until I found one that was pretty. I didn’t keep up with it. Then ravelry came around, and with the pictures on their pattern browser, I never went back to knitting pattern central. Apparently, I am not in the majority.
My Checkered Tea Cozy pattern went up on Knitting Pattern Central on Wednesday. Since then, I have gotten 567 views on that pattern. Look at my stats, (the previous, and much smaller jump in views resulted from my putting the pattern up on ravelry.)
Anyway, the point is, I’m surprised that that many people still use knitting pattern central. I’m sure that part of the reason I got so many more views from it is that there are no pictures on Knitting Pattern central, so even people who wouldn’t be interested in the pattern would still click over here. And the people from ravelry would only come if they were interested, but still.
This makes me respect knitting pattern central in a whole new way.
