I'm good with a swedish pattern, if it's decipherable with the numbers. This is the most adorable elephant I've seen in a long time. Would you mind posting the link, pretty please?

That is just too cute! Any little girl would be happy to get it. Well not just little girls, cause I could seem myself falling in love with it! Almost makes me wish I knew how to crochet.

so i've used google translate for a lot, and it has helped ... and I found a ton of broken links to the drops site which at one time had a translation (arg). Could you pls just tell me what 'fm' stands for? is that sc?and if you could translate row 60, it should give me a good precedent for the rest of the pattern. Thanks! Smiley

fm=sc
sm= slip st
lm= ch
vnd=turn

I start with a magic loop, think it looks better Wink

Row 60 on the body: varv 60: 2fm ihop var 3e och 4e m(42m) = Row 60: decrese ch 3 and 4 (42st)

hope u understand!!  Grin

haha  i'm getting there. some translations are better than others - and if i can figure out the pattern properly, i'll try to transcribe it for Craftster.

ETA: I had a breakthrough. woot! if anyone else is interested, I'm going to transcribe the pattern for myself, and if lambsmeat will help me over the rough spots, i'll post the pattern once it's done.
