Crocheting with graphs

So you found a doily pattern on the web somewhere, only trouble is it's a graph and from a foreign publication.  Your unsure of yourself in looking at the pattern.  Some of the stitches look unfamiliar, so you pass over it even though you really, really like the pattern.

WELL, I've found a website that might help some of you. 

The link is

It's not in English, but that doesn't really matter.  Just click any square with a crochet symbol in it.  A video will come up to watch showing how the stitch is made.  If you don't understand the language, don't worry; the couple videos I have watched are good.  There is a second page; just click on the link next to the small red arrow at the bottom of the page to the right.    This is definitely a link you will want to save in your favorites.

A good way to view the website is with a translation.  If you don't have an "English Translate" URL in your favorites, why not add one.  Go here  and follow the directions  

THEN, when you are on a web page and would like to translate it into English, just choose this from your Favorites, and instantly it's translated into English.  I've used it for some time and find it quite helpful!!

Have a great day!

Hi Linda, Thanks for the link to the translate button. I would copy the URL and then open it in Google translate but this is so much easier!! Some sites in foreign languages do have the most beautiful patterns and now we can enjoy them.
Here is one such link
