Oh, how do you say "panta"? Is it like what a dog does "pant" + "uh" or like dupont (pont) + "uh"?  It was a controversy last night!

You say the final -a- in "Panta" as you would in the word "Panda"   Smiley.

oh wow, that one came out great...  what size needles did you use?

I don't know if your question is directed towards me, but I'll answer anyway!  I used US 5 needles.  I've been sticking to US 5 needles with worsted yarn even though I realize that the original pattern most likely called for 5 MM.  With US 5 needles Pantas come out not too big, and not too small for me.

I not a fan of small needles either, but the pattern is so easy that it just goes fast.  I say give it a try!

Less than one because I skipped 1 section. (I like my pantas tight).  I love their colors also Smiley

Inspired by the panta, I made my own versions. Smiley

Edit: Oops. I accidentally deleted a pic while organizing at photobucket. Edit was to remove broken link.
