1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need Help Making A Pattern for Panta/Calorimetry on: February 08, 2008 08:18:41 PM
I'm willing to pay a crafty knitter to come up with a pattern.  PLEASE?

Thanks for the pattern!  I searched all over the internet, then was like "duh---search craftster!" and I came across your pattern.  It was wonderful!  I was a little confused about how to make the ends, so I wung it... I made a crochet ball button on one end, and a button hole at the other.  I also made two small scallops right where my ears are, so that they really cover the ear.
Here are the pics:

In use (I don't know why I look so mad here...lol)

Close up to see the sitches

I'm thinking I'm going to do some embroidery on the front---maybe some lazy daisys and chains.  We'll see.  It just needs something.
I'll post pics if I add anything.
Thanks again for figuring out the pattern!


VERY CUTE!!!!!!!!!

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

I tried and it looked so bad I unravelled it!!!!!  I'm so inept when it comes to crochet I guess.  I just can't get the ">>>>>>>" to show up in the row beneath!

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/crocheters can help and figure out the pattern.  The folks at the knitting forum say it's crochet...but it looks too perfect to be crochet (look at the "V" shape near the ears in the 2nd photo).  Plus how'd they get the perfect "stockinette" stictch?Huh

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

I'm about to go nuts if I can't make one.  I've spent so much money buying yarns, needles, hooks, etc.  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...but this time:  "Crochet Style"!

Thanks!

Use knitty's free Calorimetry pattern as a base http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTcalorimetry.html It's ribbed, but that's easy enough to change.

The edging & flower on these photos are probably crocheted.

How would I go about un-ribbing it?  Sorry if I sound dumb...but I'm a total newbie!

I enlarged the photo of the white one, and it is definitely crocheted. Your starting chain would be in the center and you'd be crocheting around, on both sides of the chain.

Yes, my friend has one.  It is really thick yarn, but it's double (as in from two separate balls used as one).

It looks knit in person.  It has the perfect stockinette ">>>>>>>" going horizontally (as in the very last photo). 

Also in the 2nd big photo, how did they get the perfect "V" shape near the ears?

Would it be possible that it's knit and crochet?  Meaning the 4 rows on the left and the 4 on the right (the v shape) are then crocheted together with two rows of single stitch crochet?  The "V" near the ears look so perfect.  Crochet is a little sloppy, no?  You can get angular edges like that.  Can you?

Honestly, I'm so frustrated after trying to figure it out, I may just cave and cough up the $50 for the darn thing!  I've spent way more on yarn, needles, hooks, books, etc.  :\
