Pattern Translation - I've done most of the translating, need some assistance!

Hi, I have translated a Russian pattern to English. I used Google translate and it was still a mess. I have refined it since, but as I have never knit a sweater/cardigan before, I am looking for some guidance to refine further and “dummy” this down for me! Help would be super appreciated - the cardigan is just beautiful!

Are you familiar with wordreference.com? It is the Collins dictionary which also has a forum just like here where folks help out with translations. They are super friendly and very knowledgeable. You might get lucky and the person that answers your question might be a knitter. In any event, they help translate and explain single words as well as phrases.

Search for a word/phrase, then scroll all the way down to see all the forum posts pertaining to that word/phrase. It is one of my favorite sites on the internet and many professional translators use it.

Good luck! the pattern is lovely.
