Translate Crochet Pattern Diagram --

Found a beautiful snowflake pattern on Pinterest. It is in diagram form which unfortunatly is not my expertise! Then came to find out it is Polish. DEFINATLY not my expertise. I have exhausted all avenues that I am aware of to get these symbols on the diagram translated or better yet get the pattern written out in English.My daughter found a Polish lady online that was kind enough to look at the pattern for us but she indicated the symbols did not look all that famiiar to her.
Any help or any GUESS of where to look would be great!

Many thanks in advance...............Linda Kearns



Hi Linda:

Please share the link to the pattern and I will take a look.

“Kindness is a language which
the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”

~~ Mark Twain ~~

How great is Thy goodness, which Thou has stored up for those who fear Thee, which Thou hast wrought for those who take refuge in Thee, before the sons of men! Thou dost hide them in the secret place of Thy presence from the conspiracies of man; Thou dost keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues. Blessed be the Lord, for He has made marvelous His lovingkindness to me in a besieged city. As for me, I said in my alarm, "I am cut off from before Thine eyes"; Nevertheless Thou didst hear the voice of my supplications when I cried to Thee. O love the Lord, all you His godly ones! The Lord preserves the faithful, and fully recompenses the proud doer. Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who hope in the Lord.

Psalm 31:19-24

The Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me. Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, "Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?" And the King will answer and say to them, "Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of the, you did it to Me.

Matthew 25:35-40


And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" And He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?" And he answered and said, "YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." And He said to him, "You have answered correctly; DO THIS, AND YOU WILL LIVE." But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" Jesus replied and said, "A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho; and he fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went off leaving him half dead. And by chance a certain priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him, and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, "Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return, I will repay you." Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers' hands?" And he said "The one who showed mercy toward him" And Jesus said to him, "Go and do the same."

Luke 10:25-37

And so, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. And beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word of deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

Colossians 3:12-17


Remind them to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed, to malign no one, to be uncontentious, gentle, showing every consideration for all men. For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that being justified by His grace we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal live.

Titus 3:1-7




Who said it?

"Out of the eater came something to eat, and out of the strong came something sweet."

RE: How to Crochet: Writing on Single Crochet Fabric with Slip Stitches


<< Comments >>

Could this work on the double crochet blanket I am making? I want to add a phrase. Cross stitching it seems too messy.
marti lyons

<< Reply >>

I believe this method will work on any crocheted fabric. Plan ahead... (1) count the number of letters you need to add and allow spaces between words; (2) count how many stitches are in the space you plan to write in and plan accordingly.

Re: Error in Hanging Dish Towel

Good morning, I'm a beginner and I'm trying to crochet your hanging dish towel pattern and since I'm a beginner I'm kinda confused and need your help. The first row says to chain 9 then sc in 4th chain from hook to come out to having 7 sc I only come up with 6 sc please help. This is a beautiful hanging dish towel. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you

Sorry my mistake it's dc not sc


<< Reply >>

For Row 1 you make 9 chains and work the first double crochet in the 4th chain from the hook.
The 3 chains you skip count as one double crochet.
Work one double crochet in each of the remaining chains and you should have 7 stitches.



Subject: Ponytail_Hat

What size head does this fit? And what is a BLO?


<< Reply >>

Thank you so much for emailing me about this pattern.

The Ponytail Hat pattern is:
Size: Adult head circumference 22"
Hat measures 7" from top to band edge.

I have since added this information to the page:

BLO is back loop only. Instead of working each stitch into both loops you only work into the loop farthest away from you. You can see a list of other abbreviations on our Crochet Basics page:

The Incident - True story about how God works

This is about my Father In Law, James Hamblin.
We asked for and received prayer from many of our crochet family after his accident and during his recovery process. For those who do not know, James fell in October causing multiple injuries which took months to overcome. He is home now and doing well.

This is his story!

The scene: The "F" train of the subway line in New York City.

I was commuting from the Borough of Queens to my job in Manhattan. I'd

finished reading the morning paper and was saving it to bring to friends on

the job. How do you save a newspaper on the subway? You sit on it.

A new commuter came in, saw the newspaper under my rear, and asked the

second most stupid question I've ever heard (someday I may tell of the first):

"Are you reading that paper?"

I stood up, turned the page, sat down on the paper, and answered, "Yes."


One day on the way home from church a little girl
turned to her mother and said, "Mommy, the preacher's
sermon this morning confused me."

The mother said, "Oh! Why is that?

The girl replied, "Well, he said that God is bigger
than we are. Is that true?"

"Yes, that's true," the mother replied.

"He also said that God lives within us. Is that true

Again the mother replied, "Yes."

"Well," said the girl. "If God is bigger than us and
he lives in us, wouldn't He show through?"


A fellow was very much in love with a beautiful girl.
One day she told him that the next day was her

He told her he would send her a bouquet of roses, one
for each year of her life.

That evening he called the local florist and ordered
twenty-one roses with instructions that they be
delivered first thing the next morning.

As the florist was preparing the order, he decided
that since the young man was such a good customer,
he would put an extra six roses in the bouquet.

The poor fellow never knew what hit him!

The CEO was scheduled to speak at an important convention, so he asked

one of his employees, Jenkins, to write him a punchy 20-minute speech.

When the CEO returned from the big event, he was furious. "What's the idea

of writing me an hour-long speech?" he demanded. "Half the audience walked

out before I finished."

Jenkins was baffled. "I wrote you a 20-minute speech," he replied. "I also gave

you the two extra copies you asked for."


One evening just as the children were getting ready for bed Tim’s mother heard him

screaming at the top of his lungs.

She quickly ran into his bedroom and found his two-year-old sister pulling his hair.

She gently pulled his hair from the little girl’s grip and said comfortingly to Tim, "There,

there. She didn't mean it. She doesn't understand that hurts."

She was barely out of the room when the little girl screamed. Rushing back in, she

said, “What happened?” Tim looked at his mom and said, "She knows now!"

The last thing my friend Christy was prepared for was
an invitation to a costume party. Eight and a half
months pregnant, she was in no shape for any conventional

Still, she wanted to go, so she painted a big yellow circle
on an extra-extra-large white T-shirt, dug a pair of red
devil horns out of her kids' Halloween junk pile...and went
as a deviled egg.


"Grandpa, I'm really proud of you," said the modish young lady.

"What's to be proud of?" asked the old man.

The young lady replied, "I noticed that when you sneeze, you've
learned to put your hand in front of your mouth."

"Of course," explained Grandpa. "How else can I catch my teeth???"


England's West Country is known for its charming cottage-like shops.

While visiting the area, my friend peered in through one window to see

shelf upon shelf of interesting-looking books. So she went inside.

A woman appeared through a beaded curtain and asked, "Can I help you?"

"No, just browsing," said my friend.

"Fine," came the reply. "But so you know, around here most people knock before entering someone's home.”

At the barbershop recently, a father came in with his two
sons, about 10 and 12 years of age. He got both boys settled
into barber chairs and then proceeded to tell the barbers
how he wanted their hair cut.

The younger boy didn't pay much attention. But the older boy
turned to his barber and said, "Make me look good for the
girls, not for my dad!"


Years ago, when our daughters were very young, we'd drop them off at our church's children's chapel on Sundays before the eleven o'clock service.

One Sunday, just as I was about to open the door to the small chapel, the minister came rushing up in full vestments. He said he had an emergency and asked if I'd speak to the children at their story time. He said the subject was the Twenty-third Psalm.

But just as I was about to get up from the back row and talk about the good shepherd, the minister burst into the room and signaled to me that he would be able to do the story time after all.

He told the children about sheep, that they weren't smart and needed lots of guidance, and that a shepherd's job was to stay close to the sheep, protect them from wild animals and keep them from wandering off and doing dumb things that would get them hurt or killed.

He pointed to the little children in the room and said that they were the sheep and needed lots of guidance.

Then the minister put his hands out to the side, palms up in a dramatic gesture, and with raised eyebrows said to the children, "If you are the sheep then who is the shepherd?" He was pretty obviously indicating himself.

A silence of a few seconds followed. Then a young visitor said, " Jesus, Jesus is the shepherd."

The young minister, obviously caught by surprise, said to the boy, "Well, then, who am I?"

The little boy frowned thoughtfully and then said with a shrug, "I guess you must be a sheep dog."


A friend's daughter received an adorable airport play set as a gift. Since some assembly - actually, a lot of assembly - was required, her husband spent much of the day putting together the plane, the control tower, the runway, the little baggage chute, and arranging the pieces into a teeny tiny air hub.

As he finished up, his wife noticed he was frantically digging around in the box, checking all the packing materials.

"You are not going to believe this," he said. "The one piece missing... is the luggage!"


While eating dinner at the dinner table, Jay, 5, stopped and
said, "Mommy, sometimes when I drink water, it goes in to my
heart. But, that's OK because sometimes God gets thirsty,
