This is the translation that I figured out, I'm going to try it tonight:
(1 inch is 2.5cm)
Finished length, before sewing: 48 cm
2 needles, size 5
50 grams of Wool compatible with the needle
(This pattern is knit flat, remember of do the opposite on the wrong side. i.e., change the purl to knit and vice versa.)
Cast on 19 stitches
First row: k1, *p2 k2* x 5 times, 3p
Or else: p3 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 (=19 st)
Continue until your piece measures 8 centimeters
Increase 1 stitch (k) in each column of knitting:
p1, *p2 k2* x 5 , p2, p1 (=24 st)
When your piece measures 14cm
Increase the knit columns by one: p1, *p2 k3* 5 times, p3 (=29 st)
Continue until your piece measures 18 cm
Again increase the knit portions by 1 stitch:
p1, *p2 k4* x 5, p3 (=34 st)
Continue until your piece measure 21 cm
Increase the knit columns by one: p1 + *p2 k5* x5x, p3 (=39 st)
Continue until your piece measures 24 cm (You are 50% done!)
Place a stitch marker and begin the rest of the piece
Continue in the same pattern for another 3 cm, then decrease the number of knit stitches in each column by one
Continue until you are 6m from the marker, than decrease the number of knit stitches in each column by one.
Continue until you are 10 cm from the marker and decrease the number of knit stitches in each column by one.
Continue until you are 16cm from the marker and then decrease the number of knit stitches by one.
When the piece measures 24 cm from the marker you are done
Sew the two ends together.
(And then by the pictures, it looks like it's worn wrong side out.)
I found this on a brazillian website (actually this panta was the only pattern they had) and i loved it!
i don't really know what "panta" means.
so mom helped me out (she's a great knitter) and look! this is what it came out:http://www.dramaqueenmodeon.blogger.com.br/pantaresized.jpghttp://www.dramaqueenmodeon.blogger.com.br/eumesmoresized.jpghttp://www.dramaqueenmodeon.blogger.com.br/eudenovoresized.jpg
there's a bunch of other knitting stuff we made (me/mom) and i'll post sometime soon!
thanks for looking,
Found the website! Here it is:http://trico.flogbrasil.terra.com.br/
I'm working on the translation of the pattern, but i still need help from an english-speaking knitter (or at least one that can help me with the specific knitting terms). Anyone?
