language barrier
Crochet and knitting have no language barriers. We speak in symbols in our patterns. The pattern can be written out or symbols only. Here is a web site that will break the language barrier. If you click on the pictures and finally select one you like you will get the pattern when you click near the bottom of the picture. The pattern is symbols .

I've been playing around with it... and can only kind of get it to work. My adobe reader keeps telling me it needs to shut down and restart and I do that, but it tells me that again. Bleh..

But i'll keep playing with it. The patterns they have are GORGEOUS and worth the puttering to get

Great patterns!!
Unfortunately it's asking me to install the Japanese language support package for Adobe...sigh.

Thanks for share though!


Edited to say: I just upgraded my Acrobat Reader to v.8.1 and was asked when I revisited http://www.rakuten.co.jp/gosyo/46139 and opened a pattern, If I wanted to download the Japanese language support file, which I did, and now the site works perfectly.

Hope this helps anyone who wants a look-see and has my original problem

There are a lot of cute patterns there! I noticed some patterns were .pdf files, some were plain image files, and some had videos. Cool!

Oh Oh... finally got it to work. I'm making this bag... I have the bottom all done (in about an hour...) and i'm about to start going up the sides. I did have to look up a symbol chart, but it looks right so far. *dance* It's so pretty...

I have my eye on this one, a silk rayon wrap. Since the yarn in the pattern is a sport weight, I'm tempted to try out the new hemp yarn at Elann. The green is even named "Green Tea." Hmmmm!

Proof, that the language barrier doesn't matter. My first FO off that awesome website. I'm so in love with it. I'm probably going to have to make more. I did have a few problems with the bottom of the bag... as it took me twice to get it right, but once I figured it out, It came out awesome.
