Ribblr ePattern is a digital and interactive pattern format, providing a unique user & eco friendly experience. We've built it so you can enjoy the best crafting experience. Ribblr ePattern lets you interact with a pattern like tracking your progress by marking a row/round or even an entire section. The smart sizing feature lets you choose to see only your preferred size throughout an entire pattern, instead of seeing all unrelevant sizes. And there's plenty more. Automatic translation and unit conversion, see photo & video tutorials within the pattern, and even draw on a pattern. All synced across web & mobile so you can enjoy the best crafting experience anywhere you are. There's a full Ribblr ePattern manual available here.
Yes! Apart from all of its innovative features, one of the great benefits of using Ribblr ePattern is that it's truly eco friendly. Traditional PDF patterns often require printing dozens of pages.
