I know this post hasn't been active for a few months, but I just found it and made my first panta. Damn, I read a lot of you said it was just an evening project- I must be a REALLY slow knitter because it took me at least 10 hours. I mean, I knew I was a slow knitter since I"m new, but still.  Tongue

I used bamboo needles size 5 (US) and a very soft blend of alpaca and something (the ball band is in Japanese so I can't exactly read it lol). It took less than a 40g ball to make. I'm going to be making more of these. It's a great first project Smiley

It's alive!  I can't believe this thread is still active!  I think it's time for me to make another one!

PaperBag -- I love your panta!  Great colors.  I'm sorry it took 10 hours -- wow, that is a long time.  But the result is beautiful!

So funny... I woke up this morning thinking I need to make my stepdaughter one of these for her to wear on these chilly mornings!! I might just make another for me this year also - I just love these Panta's - with my curly hair they are the only thing that works for me! 

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.

PaperBag -- it took me forever to make my first panta too. And my second, come to think of it.  Cheesy

Congratulations on your first project though! It looks fantastic, and the colour's smashing!

I've been thinking about making myself a new panta ever since I lost my first one back in january...it's definitely getting to be the time of year when I want to warm my ears Smiley  Perhaps now is the time Smiley

I have a crocheted one. I got it at a yard sale and didnt know what the heck it was tilll I came on here (thought it was a wierd headband). I think I will try making one. It looks fairly easy

If speaking my mind gets me in trouble with the establishment,then I never want to be silent

I have a question! It may have been covered in the past 89 pages somewhere, but I hope you all excuse my laziness of not reading all the pages to find out...  Tongue

Okay. I want the panta wider so it covers my whole ear. I still have a ball of that yarn and want to use that. It is recommended for size 5-7 needles... So, to make it wider, would I just use a larger needle (I used size 5 in the photo above) or do I need to add a row of ribbing (is that what it's called?).

I'm not very good at making my own patterns, and I'm hoping that making my needles bigger will make the piece wider. I would just try it, but I only have one ball left and I'm not in the country where I bought it at right now lol

Anyways, one of you must be able to help me out with this Wink

I think either way would work, but I'd probably choose to add another row to the ribbing, assuming you like the way the yarn knit up on your original, changing needle size is going to change the fabric, your stitches will be looser...not as tight and snug, it's likely to be less warm that way...

or at least that's my best guess...
