I want to knit this pattern. Anyone out there know how to translate or read the chart at the bottom of the pattern?

Well, my guess is that the

1st symbol is k2tog
2nd symbol is ssk
3rd symbol (circle) is YO
4th symbol is purl

as the pattern appears to be a little lace pattern between areas of seed stitch.

You could double check on an online translator, or google Finnish-English knitting terms, or check out the translation group on Ravelry to be sure.

My Google Chrome translates the page loosely. It would be enough to give you the directions. The chart at the bottom did not translate, but shouldn't be that hard to figure out. If you want, you can pm me and I'll send you a screen shot of the translated page.

The designer has a page (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/helmi-myssy) on Ravelry (free to join) and there are numerous finished projects. You could encourage her to complete the English translation which is apparantly in progress.
