    thankyou for this, I too was a little confused, I haven’t used a pattern like this before but I am actually thinking it may be easier than written ones? I am looking forward to giving it a go, have a lovely weekend. :0)

  2. That’s OK for Americans, but the British English translation is slightly different…

  3. Oh – hang on…sorry – it’s the other way round… abject apologies – this is great for UK crocheters, but not the same for US crocheters.

    Thank you Sucrette. Theres is a symbol I ignore the meaning it’s like the tool on the handless Mr. Crochet. Comme le signe sur le drapeau de l’ex URSS à l’envers. c’est quoi ??

  6. Faith says:

    Thank you for your wonderfully clear work. It’s a pleasure to read.



  21. deborah says:

    Are the Japanese symbols the same as these? I see so many wonderful patterns from japanese sites, and can never figure them out.

  22. Heather says:

    So, I’m going to try your poncho for a baby gift….and while I’m not totally sure what I understand “tr.” to be I will be attempting it happily, it should be a fun adventure. Thanks for the inspiration :)

    What a pleasure it has been for me to have found your site! I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the work you put into sharing with all of us… I have been crocheting for 40+ years now, and have found very few people who can write a pattern as well as you can! What a talent you have….and you share it so sweetly. Your patterns are a pleasure to follow, and your work is just perfectly beautiful! You and your site are a breath of fresh air in our “crochet world”, and I look forward to following whatever you come up with next!
    Your newest fan! :)

    You say a circle means chain in English. How many chains to form the circle? I’m sorry, forgive my ignorance about using symbols and not instructions.

  31. Kimmy says:

    My name is Kim.
    I have recently become an official crotchet addict.
    Just discovered your beautiful wonderful site. I have purchased one of your patterns and can’t wait to get started on another project. I would love to create a page OT site like yours but don’t know how or where to start.
    I am having health problems and have many hours of free time so crocheting has been my saviour.
    One problem I has is I keep seeing so many lovely patterns.

  32. Carmi says:

    Thank you for generously sharing your crochet patterns. God bless!

    I just now found this page about diagram crochet symbols on your blog, Angie. I am hoping it will give me some insight into how to crochet your beautiful graphic square pattern that you used on your bright and cheerful table runner. I love that square design! I am only a beginner though and do not really know how to read diagram style patterns. I understand now what each symbol means, but where and how does the pattern begin? I assume it is crocheted in the round with the pattern beginning in the middle with a small circle? And where does each round begin? The diagram does not show where to start so I am a little confused about this part. Maybe by trial and error I will be able to figure it out. Thank you for including this page in your blog, I think it’s a good start for learning about the symbols used in diagram style crochet patterns. Thank you, Angie! :)

  34. Diane says:

    Thank you so much for giving us the key to the diagrams. Your patterns are beautiful and I so appreciate you sharing them with all of us.
