Key for the Norwegian patterns.
I'm sad to say that my notation has changed over time. When I first transcribed old patterns I used the symbols listed below. Now I make pdf files with the list of symbols included in the pattern.
Key and notes for patterns in htm format:
Please note the opposite use of L and S for small (Liten) and large (Stor)
R = ring
SplR = split ring
ESplR: = Single shuttle split ring
SplB = Split chain
Small italic most often letters denotes the start of a repeat. A repeat is marked as gjenta fra a 5 ganger til, i.e repeat from the letter a 5 more times. Please refer to the photo for the total number of repeats as it for some patterns are "repeat until you have 8 rings" or similar. Sometimes the italic letter denote the end of a last repeat.
Please refer to the photos for clarity.
