i am so in love with this!

I've been eying up pantas for ages, and now I know how to knit[1] I'm going to give one a go Cheesy  The Llamas confused me at first, so I just searched through this thread for them Cheesy

Now I just need to get my mum to teach me how to purl Grin

here's mine!  (thank you, naiara et al!)

http://img1.yoxio.com/img/220980.jpg

i worked from the pattern on page 4 of this thread, but i started it about 5 times before i decided how i wanted to do the edges and increases, so i thought i'd write out the exact pattern i used (or would have used if i hadn't started with a partial ball and run out of yarn a couple rows short of the full 120) and post it in case it might be useful to anyone else...

materials:
about 75 yards debbie bliss cashmerino aran
size 5 (3.75 mm) needles
crochet hook, scrap yarn, tapestry needle

gauge:
12 rows of panta, when stretched a bit (in the direction that makes the ribs longer, not farther apart), should measure about one tenth the circumference of your head (i.e. probably about 2.2 inches)

section 1:

cast on 19 sts using a crochet provisional cast-on (i.e. using scrap yarn and crochet hook, chain until there are 19 little bumps on the back of your chain.  pull tail through last link in chain.  using knitting needles and main yarn, pu 19 sts through those little back bumps).  this counts as row 1.

row 2 (WS): slip the first st purl-wise.  [p2, k1] x 5, p3.
row 3: slip the first st knit-wise.  [k2, p1] x 5, k3.
repeat rows 2 and 3 until you've made 11 rows total.  your last row should be a right side row.

section 2:

row 12 (WS): slip the first st purl-wise.  [p2, m1 (i.e. insert left needle from back to front under strand between needles, knit strand normally), k1] x 5, p3.
row 13: slip the first st knit-wise.  [k2, p2] x 5, k3.

knit the knits and purl the purls for 10 more rows, always slipping the first stitch the appropriate way.

now work 2 more 12-row sections.  in the first row (WS) of each section, m1 right before working each knit rib (i.e. column of knit stitches).  then just keep knitting the knits and purling the purls (and slipping that first stitch), as you'll want to do whenever you aren't increasing or decreasing.

you've made one side of the panta.  now make the top by working a 24-row section, with that same old pattern of m1's in the first row only.

now, instead of increasing before those ws knit ribs, you want to decrease by knitting the first 2 sts of each knit rib together.  do this in the first row (WS) of a total of 4 12-row sections.

stretch panta around head.  if it's too tight, make a few more rows.  if it's too loose, rip out a few.

finally, using a long tail of yarn and some deep breaths, graft the end of the panta to the beginning, in pattern.  this may make you feel like your brain is breaking, but you'll be proud of yourself when you finish.  remove scrap yarn.  weave in ends and/or wear.

[edited to clarify a few things and because i got a better picture]

peppersaskatoon - Thanks for your pattern - I feel like I understand the instructions for this a lot more- I may cast on for it tonight.  It'll make a nice break from the hugely complex cabled scarf I've been crocheting for months now!

policyoftruth - Hurrah for newbie knitters Cheesy  I hope yours goes well Cheesy

Great Job!  It's wonderful, too, to have a name for those warm headband thingy's.... do you still need the help of an English speaking knitter?  I'd be happy to give you a hand if you'd like (it sounds as though people are pretty desperate for that pattern!)

They also have a panta pattern on http://www.soysilk.com/  under "Knitting w/Jenny"  I think it was inspired by this thread?  Smiley

Is this knit fairly loosely or more tightly? I'm thinking about knitting a panta, but I tend to knit rather too loose for the pattern I'm following.

It was indeed inspired by this thread. My panta has fewer repeats and is made from soy, which is very stretchy, so it's shorter. And with fewer repeats, it's not as wide and it doesn't cover your ears, which is good if you a) live in arizona and b) talk on the phone a lot. I'm also working on a children's panta. But that will be a little while.
