We recently added some things to the "pattern ideas" tab on yarn pages.
The pattern ideas section gives you a way to look through patterns that other people have paired with a yarn. Next to each pattern you'll see 4 example projects that used that specific yarn and you can click to see the rest.
Some of the new additions: you can filter by craft or category, enter a range of skeins that will be matched with each pattern's yarn requirements, and click over to the advanced pattern search. You'll also see more information about yarn requirements - both the amount that the pattern calls for and the amount typically used by other Ravelers.
Finally, patterns that are both listed in both the ideas and your favorites or queue will appear at the very top so that you do not miss them.
If you have any suggestions for improving pattern ideas even more, we'd love to hear them!
