I was not at all planning to enter the challenge but some last minute inspiration and one lost Panta made it happen.  I was very sad after I lost my Panta, then I saw the popularity of Knitty's Calorimetry, then I saw One Stitch Challenge entries being posted and POOF!  Inspiration happened...it took a couple tries to get a headband I was happy with and it still will never replace my lost Panta but here it is...


I went outside for natural light...I forgot I'd have to deal with the wind too...




The pattern is short row shaped like Calorimetry but of course gauge, weight of the yarn and needle size were adjusted significantly.  It was a super easy knit, took just over an hour, I definitely see more short row headbands in my future!

The stitch and yarn combination makes a great panta - good work & thanks for posting!

That is very very lovely. The purple and blue together make me sooo happy. I'm sure it's wonderful to wear. By any chance could you give me a hint about the pattern? Truthfully, I am unable to read knitting patterns, but I know someone who could teach me(and I taught him to knit, too), and that looks like a wonderful thing for me to try. THanks so much for showing such a beautiful thing. Your hair is beautiful, but the way.

It's a modified version of this pattern^^^

Instead of ribbing, I did it in the garter lace pattern...which complicated things a bit.

The yarn is Paton's Shetland Chunky, I think the color is called denim.  I really like the yarn a lot!

You can also check out this craftster thread, all about the Panta!  This is a link to the page with the pattern, it's a huge thread--nearly 90 pages!  I prefer the panta over the calorimetry as far as looks go--there's something about the panta--I think it compliments almost every head I've seen it on!

Thanks so much. Next time I get the chance, I will truly attempt to force my friend to teach me to read patterns. It's not that I don't know how to knit, I do. I can knit and pearl and I recently learned how to cable. I just have never done anything with patterns except that cable project, which was incredibly simple. I probably will just stick to the ribbing for it, though. That other stitch sounds too complicated for me. Thanks!

I like this much more than "calorimetry" which just seemed, to me, like a transposed panta. Props to you for seeing the potential in calorimetry and finding a better stitch pattern for the "short row headband" idea.
