Japanese Knitting

Yesterday I spent hours looking at Japanese knitting patterns.  I know, I don't read Japanese.  But knitters on Ravelry call it "challanging for the adventurous knitter"  and for some reason I feel that my life will be unfullfilled unless I tackle a highly complicated lace pattern that is charted with asian symbols.  Seriously, you should see the designs out there.  Fantastic! 


  1. I have made this sweater. If you would like help decoding the pattern I can help you. I am on ravelry as renatabrenner.

  2. Hi Ma'am,
    I found your blog through an internet search for japanese knitting patterns and the pattern posted here looks interesting.
    Could you possibly tell me more about it, what it's called and where to find it perhaps?
    I'd really like to see what it looks like.
    Thank you

  3. Hi! The funny thing is, I just found the photo online as an example of the charting in the Japanese knitting books. So, I don't have the details of this one. If you are on Ravelry, the woman in the comment above would probably be willing to help you. I have asked her questions when trying to decode the charts in my own books. Her name on Ravelry is renatabrenner. Thanks!
