Hello Dandy, my name is Margo and I looking at a pattern and found that you are the only one that spoke English on this site. http://liseshobbyrom.blogspot.com/2008/01/kinesisk-smettesjal-oppskrift.html

this is what your comment said, Dandy sa...
Kinesisk smettesjal, oppskrift
this is very pretty!! I translated it and am on my second repeat... do you mind if I post my translation of the pattern on my blog?? (once I'm done knitting it)

It won't let paste the picture It is called in English "Ascot scarf with ajour" which was translated from Google. I would like to know if you ever translated it like you mentioned above and if yes. would you be kind enough to share the pattern please. I am desperate to find the English version of this pattern.
Also is the rest of this message, what you wrote or is it from the author saying what she used.
also what size yarn and needle did you use?

I'm using sport weight yarn and sz 4.5mm needle

thanks a bunch , Thank you so much for your for your help, very much appreciated.
