Translating French knitting patterns

greymoonJuly 31, 2008

Can anyone here translate French knitting patterns? I bought a pattern while I was in Lyon a few weeks ago and my husband, who speaks French very well and attended university there, canot for the life of him translate these instructions. The pattern was lovely when made up in the shop, but without being able to translate it, I will never be able to make it.

Any help, even with phrases would be appreciated!

If all else fails, have him translate what he can and we can try to turn that into needlework language.

I GOOGLED "french knitting terms" and came across this site that translates french knitting terms to English.

Hope this helps!
