Well, late on the bandwagon, but here is mine.  I took out 2 repeats  - I still think it doesn't look right on me, but I love the way it came out. (excuse my door - i'm also painting)
****now i can't get my picture to post. Sad

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. (It’s stretchy.) Shadkitty says subtract 10%. Divide by 10 and write the result here: A = __________ inches/cm.

Starting at the back 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. Weave in ends.

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

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

This is on page 65.

I don't get it. How are each of the sections worked? Are they knitted then sewed together? Help!!
Can anyone draw a shmatic of how the pattern is built? I guess I'm a little dumb, but I need help.
I'm thinking that if you knit like 8  sections that are the length of A ( let's say 20") you'll get a really long scart thing.

Here's an example that may help.


Excuse the bad photo, I had to sharpen it up a lot. Basically it's just like a rectangle of ribbed knitting and you increase on the wrong side every 2" (if you're knitting a 20" panta). This makes the purl part of the ribbing wider. Does that make any sense? I'm awful at explaining things Tongue I found that the thing that threw me the first time was figuring out which side was the right side.

This was the first thing I ever knit and I can remember how confusing it seemed and how many times I had to rip the f*$&ing thing out. Best advice is just to knit a test one (use chunkier yarn and needles if you don't want to spend too long knitting it) and follow the pattern carefully. Look at how the knit and purl stitches look on the needle as this will help if you get lost in the pattern (knit stitches=scarf, purl stitches=noose).
