More Praise for Symbol Crochet

Maria comments: "Last year I suffered an accident that obliged me to stay quiet the whole year without walking. I am a 60-year-old lady, and I thought I wouldn't be able to tolerate it. About that time, I found knitting and crochet. I enjoyed any needlecraft news on the Web and tried to learn as much as possible. I did many projects for my family and friends, and I thank God for that! In relation to symbols, I agree with you; I understand them much better than patterns because I cannot read instructions without the stitch dictionary."

Kim writes: "I agree about pattern charts. I first started making crochet items while in the Philippines. Amazingly, the patterns were written in Japanese, but the publishers also charted the directions. When I returned to the United States, I had a hard time understanding written directions. Now, if I don't quite understand the pattern, I try charting it. It has worked out well."

June agrees: "I'm writing in reply to Jackie of Essex. I, too, am a Brit. I taught myself to crochet when I was in my 20s and am finding it confusing to convert some things. I think symbols would be a great idea and very helpful."
