I finished my own Panta last night. I don't think I'm necessarily cool enough for Panta, but I still like it. I originally intended it to be a gift, but now I'm not sure....

Wool of the Andes, size 5 needles, and the only change I made was to slip the first and last stitches of every other row.

*sends out a panta SOS*

ok either i think i was totally out of it and completely tired when i attempted this. i ended up with 33 stitches the first time you increase instead of 24

I'm just going to verbally work out your problem here.

The panta is ribbing with a new stitch thrown in every couple of inches.

 If you started with 19, that's 1 outside, 2 g, 2 s, 2g, 2s, 2g, 2s, 2g, 2s, 2g, 1 outside for 19 stitches.

Then after an inch or two, you add one to every s, so you get 1 outside, 2 g, 3 s, 2 g, 3 s, 2 g, 3 s, 2 g, 3 s, 2 g, 1 outside, for 26 stitches.

But you are ending up with 33 -- that's 7 additional stitches.  Where are they coming from.

What technique are you using to add stitches?

Sorry if this makes no sense to anyone but me -- I have to write it out to picture it.

Ok... I sort of get the feeling that when people have troubles with the increases.. they're increasing once for every purl stitch instead of once per "purl" partition? or something, I don't quite remember the pattern.

Here is my Panta! 

Not easy to photograph the top of one's own head, so the picture is NOT the greatest.  I substituted a mini cable stitch for the ridges.

Are there any instructions for a skinnier, bad-hair-day-in-warm-weather version?  I think it should be pretty easy to modify the pattern, but would love to see some others done thinner. 

Yep, I'm planning to make at least one more!

i'm just making one, just make 4 ribs instead of 5. cast on 16 stiches, and it should do the trick:) and use cotton instead wool Smiley if you use thin yarn and big needles, it won't be so dense, so that can help, too:)

I really like the look of this one! What yarn and sz needles did you use?

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.

Oh my, was your version of the pattern taken off your site?  I was mid-way through my panta with your version.

Anyway that I can ask for the pattern to be pm'd to me?  Please?

What the deuce?
