English – Italian Crochet Translations

What if you find a really nice crochet pattern but it’s in Italian and you don’t speak Italian? Should you get it?

Go for it I would say! And don’t worry, with this English-Italian translations list you’ll be just fine!

When there’s whole sentences in the pattern that explain what to do, I usually just copy paste them into Google Translate. Once in a while a translation on there might sound a little odd, but it will still be possible for you to understand the meaning of that sentence.

This way you can use crochet patterns in any language. How wonderful is that?!
