Hey ^^

I was wondering if anyone could read Japanese, or has used The book posted above. I bought it thinking I could get by, but my head hurts,

I really want to make what's in the book, but it has kanji -_-;;;;

Hi!

I dont have the book  But what exactly you dont understand ?

usually japanese books comes in crochet charts that you have to fallow

ex.
x    sc single crochet
T    hdc half double crochet.. etc

maybe you see these kanjis..

頭 atama head
体 karada body
足 ashi foot
耳 mimi ears
手 te hand
 
etc..

Good luck !  and I hope you make your kumas  !  Smiley

I scanned a part of it.

I think I got it after your kanji explanation. I appropriate it.

I believe the pattern is done in an oval shape... I get the gist of the pictogramness.

the pic is not clear but I guess.. from left to right :

the head , ears and the other is the arm...

The part that you didnt scan is probably the body also named in japanese
ボディ I know I know they have different names haha @[email protected] ...

probably you have to start each leg separetly  左足 left foot  右足 right foot and then join them and continue working in rounds.

I hope I helped you ! Smiley
