7231  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: taiyaki purse from Knit Room by Tomoko Fujita on: March 23, 2007 06:50:15 PM
you're right about the stitches, and the x with a dash *is* for stitching in the back loop (like christinacoghill said).  one of my simpler amigurumi books in japanese has really nice explanations for the japanese stitch symbols-- if you'd like i could scan it and translate it a little for reference.  almost all japanese crochet books seem to use the same symbols, i have noticed.

Thanks for confirming this! And, any translation help would be great! I have a translation guide for Japanese patterns that I found around here somewhere, but it is for sewing pretty much. So, a bit more info on the crochet terms would be great! Thanks a bunch!

I think the x with the dash under it is single crochet thru the back loop or something like that. 

Thanks christina! Even if it's "something like that," at least now I won't be lying awake tonight trying to figure it out...since I haven't located my symbol crochet book that's written in English...

Well, I've been staring at the donut pattern (I was eating dinner so I gawked while I gulped), and I've figured out that the filled in oval is a slip stitch/join at the end of  a round, and the V shape with the X is for an increase or decrease depending on which way the V points, but I'm still stumped about the X with the dash under it...I'll have to try and find my other book of symbol crochet patterns (in English!)...I'm walking away from the computer now...really...

craftADDchick you got a great package! I love the idea of wrapping the ribbon around the outside to give you more to craft with!

An extra bonus! Now I hope even more that her first box somehow finds its way to my house... Wink

I ordered this book, plus a couple of others, when I first saw this post. And, now I just have to wait for everything to arrive. I'm a bit nervous, though- I looked at the donut pattern (link a few posts back in a reply by ax174) and there were some symbols I didn't know (X with a dash under it, for example). So, when my book comes in (in a couple of weeks), I'll be needing some help figuring out a few things!  Grin

Hooray! I received my box from Alana1223. The first box she sent seems to have gone astray, so we both waited anxiously for this one to arrive safely. And, it's a fabulous one!! So, in celebration of its arrival, lots of pics!

First of all...it was heavy...

And wrapped in ribbon:

But just as lovely when unwrapped- decorated with blue paper and silver glitter glue:

The long shot to show all of the goodies:

Hello Kitty, Flowers, Tags- destined for cards...

Charms: A llama, a sea turtle, a hedgehog (which matches a pair of earrings I have), 2 tiny dragonflies, Celtic knot, tree, Os (rune meaning harmony, wisdom, love)

Mini Playing Cards, Passport and World Map...

Stickers, Tiny Seashells, Jewelry Findings, Tags

And a bunch of beads in my FAVORITE colors!

Was this a great box, or what?!?!  Grin  Thanks Alana!

And, great kids book: Keeping House by Margaret Mahy.  Now my daughter finally understands why she lives in a trash heap.  And why the cupboards must never, ever be opened.  Wink

I just ordered a copy...and I'll keep it on the coffee table...if I can ever unearth the coffee table... Grin

And, all of those sick kids finally caught up with me. I'm taking tomorrow off sick from work. I may just have to sit on the couch (or a chair, actually since I'm not sure if there are still mice living in the couch) and craft all day.

from an American seller whose ridiculously overpriced, here's the list of what's in the book:

1.) decorated cake tea cozy
2.) strawberry pouch
3.) chocolate cake pocket tissue case
4.) chocolate cake tissue box
5.) watermelon pouch
6.) Pineapple pouch
7.) Pear Pouch
8.) Pear Measure Tape case
9.) Apple Pouch
10.) Doughnut Brooch (can also be a food toy or fill it with potpourri for a sachet)
11.) knit hanger
12.) cake photo frame
13.) Hamburger coaster (each piece - lettuce, tomato, patties, are actually coasters you can use
- stack 'em up in a burger if not in use)
14.) Egg Pouch
15.) Toast Egg Pouch
16.) Taiyaki Pouch

I think this may have been one of the books I ordered yesterday from YesAsia.com. I also ordered a bunch of amigurumi books and a book of sock and glove toys (I saw the books recommended on another post or blog). I'm a sucker for books...

I bought the yarn, but I haven't had a chance to make it yet...so mine will be posted a bit late...

Very nice! I had a chance to look at their site, but I haven't had a chance to start my own bit of coral, yet. Hopefully, they'll be taking contributions for a while...

Yours are inspiring! I like the series that goes from small to large...
