3  panta! (from a finnish pattern). in Knitting: Completed Projects by naiara on: September 01, 2005 02:34:25 PM
naiara's photos were broken, so here is a collection of gorgeous pantas from this thread!  Click Show Images Only to see even more!  Kiss --sweets4ever

   

   

PATTERN:
This is the translation that I figured out, I'm going to try it tonight:

(1 inch is 2.5cm)


Finished length, before sewing:  48 cm
2 needles, size 5
50 grams of Wool compatible with the needle

(This pattern is knit flat, remember of do the opposite on the wrong side. i.e., change the purl to knit and vice versa.)

Cast on 19 stitches

First row: k1, *p2 k2* x 5 times, 3p  

Or else: p3 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 (=19 st)

Continue until your piece measures 8 centimeters

Increase 1 stitch (k) in each column of knitting:
p1, *p2 k2* x 5 , p2, p1 (=24 st)

When your piece measures 14cm
Increase the knit columns by one: p1, *p2 k3* 5 times, p3 (=29 st)

Continue until your piece measures 18 cm

Again increase the knit portions by 1 stitch:
p1, *p2 k4* x 5, p3 (=34 st)

Continue until your piece measure 21 cm

Increase the knit columns by one: p1 + *p2 k5* x5x, p3 (=39 st)

Continue until your piece measures 24 cm (You are 50% done!)

Place a stitch marker and begin the rest of the piece

Continue in the same pattern for another 3 cm, then decrease the number of knit stitches in each column by one

Continue until you are 6m from the marker, than decrease the number of knit stitches in each column by one.

Continue until you are 10 cm from the marker and decrease the number of knit stitches in each column by one.

Continue until you are 16cm from the marker and then decrease the number of knit stitches by one.

When the piece measures 24 cm from the marker you are done

Sew the two ends together.

(And then by the pictures, it looks like it's worn wrong side out.)



I found this on a brazillian website (actually this panta was the only pattern they had) and i loved it!
i don't really know what "panta" means.
so mom helped me out (she's a great knitter) and look! this is what it came out:

there's a bunch of other knitting stuff we made (me/mom) and i'll post sometime soon!
thanks for looking,

muah!

EDITED:
Found the website! Here it is:

I'm working on the translation of the pattern, but i still need help from an english-speaking knitter (or at least one that can help me with the specific knitting terms). Anyone?

well, since padray said she couldn't take pictures, i took some before i send the swap to her.

The stuff was all inside this bag:


"O Boticrio" is a very famous Perfume Store here in Brasil.

Then, the stuff:


Some perfume samples, a bracelet and ring combo, another "life bracelet" with "sade" wrotten in it (means health in english)... and so sorry for all my mistakes heh.. and the scarf. inside the blue bag there's the soap and sponge thingy Tongue

next, the scarf (moebius) itself:

I really loved this yarn. it has a gradient goin' on. it was so fun to make!

Here's just a close-up of the yarn:


yep, quite a lot of pics, sorry. well it's a gallery anyway Smiley

I'm glad padray liked it!
