When a pattern is updated in Ravelry, purchasers often get a notification (either by email, or by private message). Updates are used to deliver the pattern and/or updates to everyone at the same time. There are a few ways to check for updates.
First, check in your library. Go to Ravelry, then choose Library from the drop down menu under the my notebook tab on the top right.
In the library, you’ll find records on the left of all the Ravelry related purchases you have made. See that button on ours that says 1 update available? Find that button in your account, and click it.
You’ll be led to a list of patterns that have been updated, along with a history of messages from the designer (or whoever did the updates). Click on update now to get the latest version of that pattern.
What if you didn’t associate your Ravelry ID with your purchase? Well, if the email you used is the same as the one connected to your Ravelry account, those patterns can be updated too!
Click on your avatar in the top right corner of the page, then choose purchases.
Then click on Purchase Finder and enter the email address you used when purchasing an item from Ravelry. A link will be sent to connect that purchase to your Ravelry account.
If for some reason an update isn’t working for you, and you purchased a pattern from Makers’ Mercantile, send us an email and we will do our best to help you.
