11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: panta! (from a finnish pattern). on: May 15, 2006 08:35:29 AM

How's everyone doing?? I so far am doing really really well. However my husband (who is supposed to be supporting me) is taking me to a yarn shop next weekend. I am justifying it as spoiling myself because I've never used good yarn before.

Here are my stashbusting projects...



The black is Clapotis, the turquoise is the Elizabethtown hat, the green is #1 of my pocketbook slippers, and the multi-colored is a panta.

For some reason I am taking FOREVER on this project. When I do pick it up I could work on it for hours but it's hard to pick up to work on. Normally I pick up a smaller project...Oh well here we are so far...

I'm a very slow knitter but I started this last night and I'm now to the row where I switch needles (I'm doing the Elizabethtown hat)

Well my mom is also a crafter so she understands about being late. I'm still working on Clapotis which is going to be hers...my MIL I showed her the patterns I have and told her to choose one so I know she will like it. She hasn't chosen one yet.

I never really saw what the hype was about this hat until I watched Elizabethtown last night and man I want one bad! hehe ... I'm going to be casting on for it as soon as I press play on the movie

Ok here's a question...I'm trying to get started on this and I just got done measuring myself...I am 42 3/4" above my chest where the shirt will sit but the fullest part of my chest is 46" should I go ahead and knit for the 42 3/4" measurement and the elastic will stretch or should I knit bigger?

Also another question... my hip area where the shirt will end at is 49"...does the pattern allow for it to be bigger there or would I need to cast on for that measurement and then decrease more?

I had these issues as well. But I realized you pull the thing over your head to get it on, and if you knit the stockinette section long enough it will just go over your chest. My tip is to put on whatever bra you plan on wearing with it (or just any old bra if you don't) and measure from the point that you want to be the top to the point underneath your bust where the ribbon/eyelet section will be. For me this was nine inches...you might have a lot of stockinette to knit! lol

As for the hip part...well I'm not sure how far it will stretch. The slight ribbing effect the purling creates allows for a little stretch. You can't tell in my pictures but it's stretched nicely in the front. What size are you planning on making?

I plan on following her directions for doing it based on your measurements. I just realized that when I have my jeans on (which is what I will be wearing with this top) my hips are roughly between 46 and 47" so I should be alright as far as that goes. I'm also knitting straps to cover my bra strap and to make sure I don't get a ticket for indecent exposure.

Thanks for the tip about measuring how long the stockinette should be!

I just snuck over here to say FANTABULOUS JOB EVERYONE!! I'm just learning how to knit socks but this pattern is #2 on my list (after my first basic pair)...

btw Juniper...I always say socks that don't exactly match up just have more personality than the others  Wink
