The Crochet Lounge on Pinterest

A “How To” Guide

With the recently added Of the Month (OTM) Pinboards at The Crochet Lounge Pinterest Boards, I am seeing some questions from fellow Loungers and want to help YOU make the most out of repinning the Crochet Lounge Pins.

When it comes to Pinterest, we’ve all been frustrated by pin-boards and pretty pins that lead nowhere when we are looking for a pattern vs. pattern inspiration.

The Solution – Pinterest How To Guide for TCL Pins

The Crochet Lounge created Pins with hashtag #TheCrochetLounge are sensational photos pinned with details of the Pattern Link.  They will also state “Free Pattern” or “Paid Pattern” before the Pattern Link.

Pins are made to send you to the source of the photo.  In order to bring you the best quality and colored photo pins to show off what a pattern is capable of, I have pinned photos that may not be the source of the pattern and then gave you the link to the pattern in the description.

How To Utilize The Crochet Lounge Pinterst Pins to Their Fullest Potential

How to Use The Crochet Lounge Pinterest Pins to their fullest potential

Although Pinterst may not show you the full pattern link within the description, it is a bold font and is made clickable.  So, when you re-pin from The Crochet Lounge pinboards, and it has the #TheCrochetLounge hashtag, you know you are getting information to the source of the pattern ♥

If you see #TheCrochetLounge hashtag along with #idea tag then you know it’s just an idea and does not link to a pattern, merely to where the photo was found.
