New Feature: Adding Shop Orders to Your Ravelry Library

Do you have an account on ravelry.com? If yes, it’s time for a happy dance: You can now add all your orders (past, current and future purchases) to your Ravelry library for free.

Currently, the feature is operating in test mode. You can add every pattern to your library as long as the test mode is running – yes, also your Friday Freebies – but prepare for encountering errors eventually.

If you do, please make sure to let us know where exactly the error occurred (at which step of the ones listed below the error occurred?) by emailing support@knitting.today. Make sure to include your order id, otherwise we can’t help you effectively. Thank you!

Currently it’s working for orders on knitting.today only, but I’m working on adding support to orders made on jriede.com in the near future.

Step 1: Find Your Order ID

Look for emails in your inbox with a subject similar to “Your knitting.today order from <some date here> is complete” (example: “Your knitting.today order from December 8, 2017 is complete”). 

The email body should look like the picture below. You see a line like the one stating “Order #42300” below – the number after the hash (42300 in our example) is your order number.

Note: Entering “42300” won’t work. That’s one of mine. Find you own!

Step 2: Looking Up Your Order

As soon as you have your order number ready, visit https://api.knitting.today/index.php/order/find_by_id.

Enter your order number and click “Submit.”

Step 3: Connect to Ravelry

If your result looks like the picture below, stating “please connect to Ravelry first”, go ahead and click the button labeled “Connect to Ravelry”.

Step 4: Authenticate with Ravelry

You are asked to connect to Ravelry as shown in the picture below. Click “Authorize” to continue.

Step 5: Authorization Successful

If authorization was successful, you should see two green statements, one reading “connected to Ravelry” now. Proceed by clicking the button “add pattern to your Ravelry library”.

Step 6: Pattern Added Successfully

If everything goes well the result is the following page:

Go and visit your Ravelry library now to check if the pattern just added shows up in your library.

If yes – yay! Go ahead and add your other patterns as described (authentification should only be necessary once, not every time! The token expires at a certain time so maybe you’re asked to authenticate again after a certain time passed, that’s ok.)

If not, please send me an email – support@knitting.today – including your order number used and any error messages you see. I’ll do my best to assist you!

Thanks, and let’s hope the best 🙂

    How do I find my orders if I don’t have the email from past orders?

      You need either an order id or the email address used during your purchase to add purchases to your Ravelry library, sorry.

    @mohyra – Thank you for the link! I can now find all my patterns!!!! Having that available at the top of the page would simplify so much. I don’t care so much about having the patterns in my Ravelry Library as I do about being able to go back and download them again. Saving emails with no pattern name doesn’t help a heck of a lot. I don’t know all the ins and outs but it seems to me that just getting a pattern through Ravelry in the first place would make more sense. I’m trying to figure out where to begin the process; I guess I’m just terribly stupid but I can’t find a link that lets me do what the tutorial says to do.
