Russian-English Dictionary of Knitting Terms

Russian-English Dictionary of Knitting Terms

If you’ve ever attempted to translate a pattern published in Russian, you probably know that online services like Google Translate are not very helpful.

Quite often, the automatic translation that we get doesn’t make any sense at all. It happens because those services are not trained to recognize knitting terms.

To help you figure out the instructions in all the beautiful patterns that we often see on Pinterest and elsewhere on the Internet, I compiled a dictionary of almost a hundred knitting terms that are often used in patterns published in the Russian language.

Here’s a video with a quick overview of this dictionary.

This Russian-English Dictionary of Knitting Terms is absolutely free and you are very welcome to download your copy from the Library of Free Knitting Resources.

If you need help with translating knitting symbols used in the charts that accompany patterns published in Russian, get a copy of the Dictionary of Knitting Symbols and Abbreviations.
