Recently, Casey posted a tip about a new filter in the Advanced Yarn Search that allows you to find yarn from local yarn companies, spinners, and dyers. We’ve now added a similar feature in the Advanced Pattern Search that will help you find patterns from local designers!

Designers can link their Ravelry profiles to their designer pages, and if you have a location set in your Ravelry profile, you can search for patterns that have been designed by Ravelers near you. The search filter is at the bottom of the filters list on the left, in the “more search options” box, and it’s called “designer within.”

I am already enjoying seeing the beautiful patterns that are made by designers local to me! (I also got a bonus giggle this morning playing with this and seeing that Ravelry knows I live within 30 miles of myself. ;) Thanks Rav!)

Have fun searching!
