Per Dictionary.com Translator (http://translate.reference.com/translate?query=armlochzunahmen%20&src=de&dst=en) it means poor-hole-increased. Does that help?

ah...a different translate tool....that does help....I went to Google translate and didn't think to try a different one...

i think it just means increase

That's the only one I've used, I came across it by accident sort of when I was using the dictionary feature there. I'll have to check out the Google translator.

The "hole" part makes me think you might want a yo. Would that fit with the pattern?

:zombie: How do you make any sense of that? I can almost understand parts of it.

I don't think so...this is the ravelry page...and I don't see anywhere on that back that would use a yarn over increase

08-22-2013, 10:07 PM
ok...the term series means row...

M = stitches

That's lovely! I sure do hope you can come up with a workable translation. I want to see the one you make! It doesn't look like it needs eyelets, does it?

armlochzunehmen is arm hole increase. (armloch, zunehmen)

This site may help. http://www.scribd.com/doc/13075854/German-English-Dictionary-of-Knitting-Terminology

What an absolutely gorgeous coat! I do hope that we get to see a photo of the finished work of art.

Anyone know?

Armhole increases. But NOT a single stitch increase, more like the overall shaping/opening.

I took down the little bit that I posted with the actual pattern bit...but my husband and I figured it out....it was a little awkward for me...but he is good with instructions....

It was indeed armhole! *smiles*...I will post pics when I have something done...LOL...

Spam bumped this thread up but I'm glad because I couldn't find it. I came across another site you might want to add to your list of resources.
