Buggy, but shows promise

Importing my ravelry account has proven to be...extremely difficult. As in, it still hasn’t imported. I only have like 5 things in ravelry. And now that I’ve tried to import ravelry, the “import from ravelry” button is gone. Disappeared.
The love knitting link and free patterns is awesome. I just can’t “start a project” (I’m already working on two ravelry patterns) unless I can import my ravelry...well, that seems to be taking forever.
Will update a: if I can get ravelry to link and b: once I make and load the account from love knitting
Oh. Also. I love the sheep. I’ll keep the app just for her cute self

Cut off at the knees!

I have been using and loving this app for years and once upon a time gave it 5 stars. But yesterday in the middle of a knitting section I was automatically logged out and when I logged back in all of my projects were gone. Three intricate projects in the works that I have no idea where I am. I logged onto the website to discover that love knitting is now changing over to love crafts so I assumed it was a changeover problem but when I searched the website it treated me as a brand new member. Only part of “me” saved was my email address. Email to tech support was promptly answered but of absolutely no help. After several emails back and forth, it was suggested that I have a family member delete and reload the app and update my iOS version. In that I work in the computer field I found this advice to be a little insulting. But in any case- I did delete the app. And reload. And clear the cache. And restart the device. Sigh. All of my work and years of project notes on prior projects are gone. While there are handy features available to use when I upload my Ravelry library, I will never again rely on this app (or any other one, to be fair) to save my work. I should have known better!!!! Word to anyone reading this through to the end: paper beats technology every time. WRITE YOUR NOTES DOWN IF THEY ARE IMPORTANT!!!

This app is really useless. All you can do is store your patterns from LoveKnitting and Ravelry on it, which I can do on my phone without having to download an entire app for. It shows patterns but you can’t search patterns, and who wants to scroll through a bunch of stuff they never plan on doing just to find something they might like?
What this app needs:
1) a search feature for patterns.
2) make it where you can buy tools and yarns or whatever else I need.
I downloaded this thinking I would be able to buy the yarn and needles I needed but no. I had to go to the website on my phone, which isn’t very mobile friendly, and buy the things I need there. Why even make this app? Very disappointed in it. I love the website but this app is nothing like that. It’s just meant for storage and nothing else. You can download the patterns onto your phone for less storage than this app takes up so it makes the app completely useless. Come on LoveKnitting, y’all can do better than this.

Hello, thank you for your feedback. I understand how a search would be totally useful for your patterns and how an app where you can buy products would make the shopping experience on your phone a lot smoother. These are very valuable comments and is definitely something that we should consider adding to the app! As for the reader functionality that the app essentially has, there are some useful tools that make it easier to work with the patterns that many users find useful, such as a row counter, chart marker, adding notes and highlighting the parts of the pattern that you need. Thank you for your feedback once again, and please do let us know if there are any questions or comments at
