humblestumble: in my pattern llama = 1/10 the circumference of your head. So measure your head where the headband would lie, and then divide by 10 -- so in the example I used, if your head is 20" then llama = 2". Each section, then, you would knit for 2".

Some people have been finding that makes it a little too big (keeping in mind that the headband will stretch), so you might want to do it for a little less than that, or just keep testing it to your head size as you knit, which is what I tended to do, especially at the end.

Good luck!

I also assumed that it was 5mm, but I habitually use smaller needles than I "should". It takes longer this way, but I was happy with the result because like others have mentioned, this sucker stretches. My future pantas will be knit shorter before joining the ends.

Does anyone else feel like busting into a round of "It's a Small World After All" because of this knit? It's just so awesome that it's Brazilian/Scandinavian, and we're all so taken with it.

Here's my panta. It's knit out of some Sugar 'n Cream cotton I had lying around. I love the cotton. It's soooo comfortable, and it doesn't irritate my forhead the way the arcryllic and wool does. I have 4 pink hoodies, so when I saw the pattern, it made sense to make it in pink.  Cheesy

I could definately make up one of these for you, and I could probably do it with stash I've got around the house.  I'm thinking I'd probably charge about $5 or so.  (If you wanted wool, it might be a bit more...$7 or $8.)  If you email me <alimoges@usd.edu>, we can workout details!

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

i just finished mine!
it is so awesome, but when i make another one, i think i am going to use smaller needles (i used size 6 US) and make sure i measure   my llama more accurately (and actually measure my head, i just guessed how big it was and went from that).
other than that, i love it so much and cannot wait for that cool weather to kick in!

I made one!  It's a gift for someone else, but one for me is already on the needles.  I got the gloves and the panta out of one hank of Nature Wool, and I still have a bunch left.  Not bad!



This one was done in pure wool on US5 needles.  The next will be in a cashmerino/microfiber blend on US7 needles.  Oh, and both this yarn and the new one are aran weight!
