I live in Bulgaria, where there are no English magazines. I found a pattern that I would really like to knit, so I bought it, even though the pattern is in German, and I speak no German at all. Is there anyone who speaks German that can help translate? I tried using online translators, but it didn't help, since the words are technical words.

Here's the first part; sorry, but I can't figure out how to put in some of the German letters!

-----------------
Rippenmuster: Rdm, 1 M re, 1M li im Wechsel, enden mit 1M re, Rdm. In den Ruckr die M str, wie sie erscheinen.
GI re: Hinr re M, Ruckr li M
GI li: Hinr li M, Ruckr li M.
Kr re: Hin- und Ruckr re M.

Strukturmuster: M-Zahl teilbar durch 10 + 1 +2 Rdm. Lt Strickschrift arb. Es sind nur Hinr gezeichnet. In den Ruckr die M str, wie angegeben. Mit Rdm und den M vor dem MS beginnen, den MS stets wdh, ended mit den M nach dem MS und Rdm. Die 1.-10. R stets wdh.

--------------------------

Okay, there's more but I'll wait and see if anyone can help before posting more, as it's somewhat lengthy. Does anyone know a site with common knitting abbreviations and terms in German? Thanks!

I've found this site which has some German terms:

as well as German abbreviations here:

Hope these help!

Thank you, Sakran and soozeq, I will look at those links. I tried searching, but maybe I just didn't choose the right words!  Embarrassed
