Japanese Knitting

In addition to the reason I wanted this book, here are a couple more very cute projects from the Japanese knitting magazine:


Now obviously I don't speak, read or even look Japanese. So, I am going to need some help. There are a few very good explainations of the charts online. For those of you who might try some Japanese knitting, here they are:

Bravo for trying out Japanese knitting patterns! They are not difficult once you get the hang of them. I've got that mag too and love all those designs.

I have this magazine, and knitted some projects from it.
For me as a Japanese, Japanese knitting patterns seem easier than English patterns. Once you find what graphics mean, you do not have to understand language.
Since I am poor at English, I sometimes have a trouble with English knitting patterns. "ABC's of Knitting" also has knitting dictionary from English to Japanese, so when I have a trouble, I use it. This site is very popular among Japanese knitters, although it has not been updated since April 2003.
Anyway, enjoy Japanese knitting patterns!
