Ravelry Designers

May 10 2013


My team (Sandra Helsley, Sonthonax Verard) had been inspired to help users of Ravelry find new and interesting knitting projects. We interviewed users and asked them what value they got from Ravelry. First, I scraped data from Ravelry's website using a Python script. Data in hand, I used Excel pivot tables to find patterns in the data. Quickly I found a graph with depth enough to be explored with D3.js. From this, I developed the D3.js script to explore the patterns by category and designer, plotting them on popularity and 'Hearts.'
