Hi,  

Does anyone on here speak/read Dutch?  
I have a cute bunny sweater pattern I want to make, but it's written in Dut
ch. I have tried to google translate, but it comes out jumbled. There are k
nitting short form abbreviation that I can not for the life of me figure ou
t. I have googled them with no luck.  
Is there anyone that could help me translate the pattern or maybe just help
 me with the abbreviated?
Thanks for your help

I've been translating German lace knitting patterns into
English. Perhaps Dutch and German would be close enough
to figure out?

links = perl and rechts = knit in German. Is there anything
that looks near to that in your pattern? If so, we can try
from there.

Thanks for the reply.  

I've been able to get a lot of the words. The main problem is the short form abbreviation. Like IED. When I google that in Dutch is has to do with bombs lol. I've tried looking for short form abbreviations online, but I only get the long form.

Perhaps someone over on ravelry.com could help?

Another possibility would be to look for a how-to-knit website
in Dutch with diagrams of each instruction, then work backwards
from that to figure out the abbreviations.

Time for some detective work!
