The text is in Brazilian Portuguese and I'm from the mainland Portugal.
If it weren't for the different timezones I would have gladly translated everything for you (free of charge), Kristen. That is my line of work.
The abbreviation "carr" is for the Portuguese word "carreira" and that in English for this specific context of crocheting means "row".
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
