Need help with a chart
I'm ready to start knitting a semi shawl for my elderly father. I have the wool and the needles and I am an average knitter. The problem is that the instructions are given in chart form and I have been trying to figure it out and making samples and I just can't get it.

Is there anyone out there who would be willing to look at the knitting charts for this project and help me figure out what they say?

If someone would help me translate it I'd be very grateful and certainly willing to paypal you for your time.

Thanks so much for your help.

(puzzled in PA)

We are all happy to help where we can. Do you have a link to the pattern? Or if it's not online what book it's from?

Okay, the 'key' to the symbols is right there above the schematic. You read the first row starting at the bottom right across to the left, the even rows are just purl on the WS. The text says to do M1A on 3 sts, repeat the B section for whatver stitches, and the C secion is 7 sts. So here's the pattern for M.1

A - k3
B - k1 yo, k3tog, yo,
C -k1, yo, k3tog, yo, k1, k2tog

k3 to start, repeat the B section until you have 7 sts left, then do C.

Thank you
I'm working on a test swatch, using your help and seeing if I can get a result that in any way resembles the picture. I really appreciate your help and I will let you know how it turns out.
