Once you have signed into your designer account, you can click ‘Import from Ravelry’ in the ‘My Patterns’ area or from your sidebar. This will then guide you through importing your patterns step-by-step. You can choose to import all your patterns at once, or select just a few.
Once you have imported your patterns from Ravelry, they will have the status ‘Pending’ while the system brings across the information. Once this process is complete, you can edit your pattern listings.
Importing your patterns will automatically bring across your PDF, images and description, but there is information that you will need to add and edit as it is unfortunately not possible to match all the fields in LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet to those in Ravelry.
This information includes yarns and sizing. 75% of patterns sold include yarns and sizing, so to ensure your patterns have the possibility of making good sales and being chosen from promotions, it is important that this information is added.

Updating a pattern via re-import
Note that description is NOT imported on re-import when updating a pattern. All other fields are transferred on re-import.
