There really is a Craft Yarn Council.
It includes an attempt by the industry, publishers and designers to promote uniform standards for yarn, needle size, abbreviations, etc and you can see how useful such things are. But, designers still use abbreviations in different ways and usually give a glossary of terms in the pattern. These may not be standard but they do operate for the given pattern. (If only vintage patterns were so clearly defined!)

I agree: it's a very beautiful pattern, and looks challenging but not too difficult to do. Hope you enjoy making it!

The CYCA (Craft Yarn Council) also provides suggested lists of abbreviations for knit and crochet patterns so that yarn-workers and designers don't have to start from scratch each time.

Knit abbreviations

Crochet abbreviations

Look around the CYCA site for more information on reading charts and on yarn weights.
