View Full Version : Swedish pattern translation help

Hi - I am new to this forum. I found this really great pattern for a boy's sweater on the Swedish Yarn website...it has a unique collar (see the photo at:


I was all set to order the pattern and the yarn but, although the yarn is available, that particular pattern wasn't. Subsequently, I found the pattern free on the Jarbo website (all in Swedish...I browsed a lot until it appeared). I have managed a rough translation...using all sorts of internet sources...but I would really like a proper translation - there are some tricky bits!

Can anyone help me???

Thanks, Cindy

There are a couple sites with nonenglish knitting terms, let's see if they include Swedish....

Okay, at least one does

Thanks, suzeeq...I have actually found lots of these sites...Garnstudios has a terrific multilanguage dictionary which is how I managed to do my rough translation (that and an online Swedish-English dictionary). However, I really think I need a proper translation.

Do you belong to Ravelry? If so, there is a group on there called "Excuse Me" that is pretty good about connecting knitters with native speaking knitters of various languages.
