Japanese patterns

There are a lot of great online sources for free Japanese knitting and crochet patterns. Here are the ones I find most useful. Most are charted, so you don’t need to know Japanese to knit or crochet them. If you need help figuring out the yarn, hook, and gauge info, though, a great place to ask for help is the Japanese knitting & crochet group on Ravelry.

  5. Hi,
    i need some clarification for the ribbon accent bag instructions. i am new to graph instructions. What does that thick line running along the graph from end to end ean? Is this a space in the instructions? do we skipp all those stitches?

    • It’s a way of abbreviating the pattern when there isn’t room for the whole thing. It means “work even” – that is, just keep working in pattern up until the row/round where it begins to change on the chart.
