kotivinkkiMatassa has translated hundreds of knitting and crochet patterns from English to Finnish (and some even from Norwegian to Finnish). English patterns often have written row-by-row instructions, whereas Finnish knitters prefer to knit from charts. Therefore, translating knitting patterns requires chart drawing skills as well.

See examples of my translations and charts in the Finnish magazine Kotivinkki.
