Debi A at Temari Train of thought has written an excellent post for anyone just beginning to decipher all those wonderful temari diagrams to be found in books or on the net.
A common bother for all new comers to foreign language temari books seems to be the reader's inability to read what is written in the text. We all get worried about that in the beginning... or at least until we realise how much information can be found in the diagrams and photos.

Thank you Debi for writing your informative post... I expect if you listen carefully you may hear the sound many pennies dropping all around the world.
And now that you have some clues on how to understand the patterns... have a look at our range of temari books available in our store.
I've got a new temari to share but I'll post it tomorrow because I forgot to take a pic in the daylight today.
