I love the look of these Japanese crochet books but i'm worried i won't be able to read the patterns. How do they write the patterns out?

Also, i've now become slightly addicted to buying those little tubs with bulbs in. So far i have a hyacinth & a miniature daff's selection. They really brighten up the day! This is all thanks to your blog!
