You know, it's funny...I always keep seeing this topic pop up, but I never looked at it until now.  Now I realize why it's so popular!  Cheesy What a cute pattern!

I do believe there's been talk of one.  That would be fun except I don't think pantas look all that fetching on me.

Here's the official pattern, 2001 Drops Designs: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=86&d_id=10&lang=us, and here's my edit (with huge thanks to Ilsa and melosond):

PANTA (Finnish headband)

US size 7 / 4.25, 4.5 or 4.75 mm needles (or size needed to obtain correct gauge)
approximately 50g/1.76 oz. worsted weight yarn
measuring tape
yarn needle

Gauge: 18 sts = 4 inches/10 cm in stockinette st. (row gauge is not important)

Measure your head where you want Panta to sit. Subtract an inch or two / 2.5 to 5 cm. (Its stretchy.) Shadkitty says subtract 10%. Divide by 10 and write the result here: A = __________ inches/cm.*

Starting at the nape of the neck, CO 19 sts.

Section 1:
Row 1 (WS): k1, *p2, k1*
Row 2 (RS): k1, *k2, p1* to last 3 sts., k3
Rep. rows 1-2 until work measures A =  _______ inches/cm (ending with a RS row)

Section 2:
Row 1: k1, *p2, kfb* to last 3 sts., p2, k1 (24 sts.)
Row 2: k1, *k2, p2* to last 3 sts., k3
Row 3: k1, *p2, k2* to last 3 sts., p2, k1
Rep. rows 2-3 until work measures A x 2 = _______ inches/cm (ending with a RS row)

Section 3:
Row 1: k1, *p2, k1, kfb* to last 3 sts., p2, k1 (29 sts.)
Row 2: k1, *k2, p3* to last 3 sts., k3
Row 3: k1, *p2, k3* to last 3 sts., p2, k1
Rep. rows 2-3 until work measures A x 3 = _______ inches/cm (ending with a RS row)

Section 4:
Row 1: k1, *p2, k2, kfb* to last 3 sts., p2, k1 (34 sts.)
Row 2: k1, *k2, p4* to last 3 sts., k3
Row 3: k1, *p2, k4* to last 3 sts., p2, k1
Rep. rows 2-3 until work measures A x 4 = _______ inches/cm (ending with a RS row)

Section 5:
Row 1: k1, *p2, k3, kfb* to last 3 sts., p2, k1 (39 sts.)
Row 2: k1, *k2, p5* to last 3 sts., k3
Row 3: k1, *p2, k5* to last 3 sts., p2, k1
Rep. rows 2-3 until work measures A x 6 = _______ inches/cm (ending with a RS row)

Section 6:
Row 1: k1, *p2, k3, k2tog* to last 3 sts., p2, k1 (34 sts.)
Row 2: k1, *k2, p4* to last 3 sts., k3
Row 3: k1, *p2, k4* to last 3 sts., p2, k1
Rep. rows 2-3 until work measures A x 7 = _______ inches/cm (ending with a RS row)

Section 7:
Row 1: k1, *p2, k2, k2tog* to last 3 sts., p2, k1 (29 sts.)
Row 2: k1, *k2, p3* to last 3 sts., k3
Row 3: k1, *p2, k3* to last 3 sts., p2, k1
Rep. rows 2-3 until work measures A x 8 = _______ inches/cm (ending with a RS row)

Section 8:
Row 1: k1, *p2, k1, k2tog* to last 3 sts., p2, k1 (24 sts.)
Row 2: k1, *k2, p2* to last 3 sts., k3
Row 3: k1, *p2, k2* to last 3 sts., p2, k1
Rep. rows 2-3 until work measures A x 9 = _______ inches/cm (ending with a RS row)

Section 9:
Row 1: k1, *p2, k2tog* to last 3 sts., p2, k1 (19 sts.)
Row 2: k1, *k2, p1* to last 3 sts., k3
Row 3: k1, *p2, k1*
Rep. rows 2-3 until work measures A x 10 = ______ inches/cm (ending with a RS row)

BO in pattern, leaving a 12-inch tail for seaming. On WS, sew BO & CO ends together. (Or here's a crochet bind-off: http://smallleaps.blogspot.com/2006/10/whittle-and-hook.html.) Weave in ends.

Pattern notes
Knitting the first and last stitch of every row creates a garter stitch edge.

"Ending with a RS row" means that the last row that you work for each section should be a RS row. In this pattern, the odd-numbered rows are always WS and the even rows are always RS. (The increases & decreases are always worked on the WS.)

For a narrower Panta, use smaller needles &/or thinner yarn or delete sections 5-6, use the number 8 instead of 10 to calculate A & end sections when work measures as follows:
section 1 = A
section 2 = A x 2
section 3 = A x 3
section 4 = A x 5
section 7 = A x 6
section 8 = A x 7
section 9 = A x 8

If Panta is too loose, sew just inside original seam to tighten or rip out seam, rip work back until desired length, finish & wear with seam off-center.

Abbreviations:
* * = repeat the directions between the asterisks
BO = bind off
CO = cast on
k = knit
k2tog = knit two stitches together
kfb = knit into the front & back of one stitch
p = purl
rep = repeat
RS = right side
st(s) = stitch(es)
WS = wrong side

*My head is 22 inches. Minus 10%, my Panta should be 20 inches. Divided by 10, A = 2. So I end section 1 when my work measures 2 inches long. I end section 2 at 4 inches, section 3 at 6 inches, section 4 at 8 inches, section 5 at 12 inches, section 6 at 14 inches, section 7 at 16 inches, section 8 at 18 inches, and I'm finished with section 9 when my Panta is 20 inches long.

i knew i wouldn't like it, and it would look weird (to me anyway), but.... well.... everyone else was doing it. i'm not this way with drugs or anything, i swear! lol. but i was curious. so i made one quickly out of some random noro yarn i had laying around. not as bad as i thought. but it keeps the ears warm, and when you're freezing, you can't afford vanity, so hey. not too bad.

I have found that what applies to hats (according to Linda, owner of my LYS) applies to the panta as well. You need to take away 10% of your head size to get the panta to fit properly. Later on I will post some pics of my cabled panta. I think maybe next time I will add an extra rib inbetween the two cables.
