* Japanese crochet patterns (and a knit one too)

Posted on August 9th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Links.

The Japanese have a crafty streak that I really like. I bought a couple of craft books when I visited there last year (not that I’ve made anything from them yet…), and there are lots of good sites on the web. “Good” is defined as lots of pictures accessible by randomly clicking the indecipherable links, or, even better, kind translations.

Otamas: Japanese pattern (click around the site for a gigantic photo gallery) and English translation on the crochet Live Journal community


Scrubby: Pattern via Knitting Is Fun and Super Eggplant.

  • A set of 5 screen printed Christmas cards - 4x4 (10cmx10cm). This original design has been pulled by our own fair hands in our home. The minimal geometric star design is striking yet playful and offers a high quality alternative to a standard shop-bought Christmas card. Each pack

  • Gocco printed on 100% recycled card, with 100% recycled envelope, in a corn starch bag. A6 size.

  • The chainless foundation has been in use forever as one of the wonderful things you could pull out of your crochet bag of tricks if you knew about it.
