1  Re: Need Help Making A Pattern for Panta/Calorimetry in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by cynthianyc on: December 23, 2007 09:21:32 PM
My sister just sent me a link to this beee-utiful panta yesterday, and now I'm obsessed with making one too. I can knit and crochet but I can't create a pattern worth a darn.

So it seems like we've determined that this is knit with double strands and finished with a crochet edge and a crocket flower applique. Can anybody craftier than I figure out the pattern for the actual body of it?

Glad I'm not the only one!  Smiley  I actually broke down and bought one!!!!  My Christmas present to myself. I can send you the link if you want to buy one for yourself.  It's $36 without the flower and $46 with the flower.

Maybe someone will read this and help us out!  LOL!

Happy Holidays, everyone!!!!

Is there a pattern I can try?  I don't know how to knit anything else except for  stockinette and in the shape of a scarf!   Roll Eyes

Here's a better photo of the stitch:



The border/edge and flower are definitely crochet.  I'm hoping maybe one of you knitting guru's can try to make a pattern.  These are so darn cute, but so expensive!!!

Hi, everyone---

I stopped by the Christmas fair in Manhattan and the company that makes these Pantas is there.  I took a VERY close look and it looks like it's mostly knit.  It's 3 columns (not sure of the appropriate knitting terminology since I'm a newbie) on the left and 3 on the right.  It starts off as 4-5 rows at one end, then branches out and the unites on the other end.  The middle is done the same way, but 2 columns on each side.  Once you have the two "leaf-like" forms knitted, it's crocheted together into one whole piece.  The second, smaller section (the middle part) is gathered in the middle using HDC crochet.

You can kinda see it here:



And here:



I don't know how I'd go about doing this since I know nothing about increasing or decreasing in knitting.

But it's definitely knit.

I'm still trying the crochet version since I know how to do that better.

If you completed one on your own, PLEASE post your pics.  I'm sure we'd all like to see them!  Smiley

Hi, everyone!

So I've been going nuts for the past 4 months trying to figure out how to make this really pretty panta (or calorimetry).  I don't know anyone else who knits or crochets, and I'm only a newbie.  I thought I'd give it a shot and see if any of you experienced knitters can help and figure out the pattern.

Here are the big photos, but because the yarn is dark, you can see the details:  









Here are some small photos (sorry!), but you can see the details:














I'm about to go nuts if I can't make one.  It's starting to get really chilly here and I would love to be able to make one.  Maybe if someone can figure out the pattern, we can revive the panta/calorimetry craze again!  Smiley
