Stasia, have you tried searching for a pattern in your native language?

ohh yeah..believe me I did :))

I mean I have good english but it is not perfect and it is hard enough to understand the short terms people use to describe the patterns...
I sae a pattern that described really nice how to do it but I didn't like it. It wasn't tight on the head and it just looked funny.. I know how to knitt and this site is my bible to knitting. but I can't understand the short terms...

What is your native language? We have members from all over the world.

Here's a glossary for knitting terms.

Stasia, I would suggest that you pick a pattern you like, and then come here and tell us which parts you don't understand. Then we know exactly what terms you need help with and we can help more. :)

You're welcome! We have two members I know of who are in Israel so they may be able to help, too. I'm not sure of their native language, but it's worth a try if you need more than we can give you.
