Does anyone know of an English translation of this wonderful gem? SmileySmiley

It would help I we knew which language this is written in.  I tried using google translation and Babel Fish to no avail.  It looks to be Norwegian or maybe even Dutch (doesn't seem like German though).  Asking somebody to translate the whole thing is a bit much though--a web translation service is your best bet, I think.

ETA: the URL ends with .fi.  Maybe that means it's a Finnish website?

Since the web address ends .fi it's Finnish, if that helps anyone translate?

I tried intertran, but it's like with most crafting lingo: no hope of an automated translator being able to do it. i think your best hope is to find a knitter who speaks Finnish and get her/him to put it into English for you, or at the very least to contact the author and ask for an English translation, if that is possible.

I think that is a list of finnish/english knitting terms.  Good luck!  That is an awesome hat!
