Every since I saw you post this I was hoping that someone would find a pattern.  Since no one responded with one, I thought I would give it a try.  I think I got it! 

My panta ends are a little long, so maybe fewer stitches for the "ties" will fix that.

This is the quick and dirty pattern:
I used Red Heart, with a G hook.  The whole thing is worked in a spiral.  Always use the loop closest to you.

Chain 21, half double crochet (hdc) starting at the second chain from hook and continue until last chain stitch.  (You may want to mark the skipped chain stitch because you will need to use it later).

In the last chain stitch make 3 half double crochets, chain 1 and work 3 more hdc's in the same stitch (6 total).  HDC down the opposite side of the chain until you get to the skipped chain stitch (or the marked chain stitch). 

*3 hdc, chain 1, 3 hdc.  1 hdc in each hdc stitch* until you get to the chain 1 stitch. 

Repeat this pattern until you have six rows on either side of the starting chain.  End at the chain 1 stitch. 

Work 3 hdc then chain 11 (you may end up having to make this shorter or you will end up with nice ends to tie).

Turn, skip first chain (mark) and hdc in each chain stitch, when you get back to the 3 hdc stitch, add 3 more hdc's in that stitch.  HDC in each stitch until you get to the chain 1 stitch.  3 hdc, then chain 10.

Turn, skip first chain stitch (mark) and hdc in each chain stitch, when you get back to the 3 hdc stitch, add 3 hdc's. 

HDC in each stitch, including the opposite side of the chain.  When you get to the skipped (marked) chain stitch, 3 hdc, chain 1, 3 hdc. 

HDC in each stitch, continue hdc in opposite side of chain.  3 hdc chain 1, 3 hdc in marked stitch.  HDC in each stitch until one stitch before tie.  Single crochet, slip stitch and finish off.

I did not add the trim or the flower, but you can add another color and do a single crochet border.


I made a second one in solid color to show the stitches a little better.   The hdc make a "knit-like" stitch on the top if you just use the back loop.

This is a very fast item to make, took me the better part of an hour to make it.  This time I used 6 chain stitches in the "tie" and put a button on it.
 


I tried this pattern with a G hook and it came out WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too small. Like, baby size. Did anyone who did this modify it at all? It seems like I'd have to seriously up the hook size to get an adult size.

Hmm, I used Bernat Softee Chunkee, and it came out fine, but I see waht you mean with the red heart and a g hook.  I have a large noggin.  I think you could safely add rows on it to make it fit.

I actually just added a few rows and it seems like it will fit now. I looked in my stash of hooks and grabbed a G hook... upon closer inspection I have 3 G hooks! 3.75mm, 4.25mm, and 4.5mm!! WTF  Roll Eyes I used the 4.25 mm, guess next time I'll use the 4.5mm! :p

i am working on one too i used a 5mm hook as i crochet tightly and had no idea if my 8ply aussie acrylic would be the right yarn. its looking the right shape etc but i think i might use a 6mm next time. i make a crochet panta using a 6mm and they turn out great. you can see pics of them in the sweat shop gallery round 12.

will check out the new link too thanks for sharing everyone.
