Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

FO – Panta

Posted by Amber on February 18, 2006

So this was my olympic knitting downfall — I wasn’t going to start new projects for 16 days. But then, I decided the pretty handpaint stripes supermerino just had to be knit.

It bacame a “panta” (I really wish I could find a translation, but there’s some discrepancies about whether the original pattern was in Finnish or Portugese).

I got the pattern from someone at Craftster.org, but that seems to be down today. There’s a discussion of it here.

Basically, it’s a ribbed strip that starts out skinny, gets bigger, and then gets smaller, and then both ends are sewn together. I blocked mine extra wide to be more of an ear cover — since I’ve always got a barrette or something in my hair, hats tend to catch on them, or not fit right (or I don’t put my hair up until I get to work, and look a little silly. I think it makes my forhead look big, but warmth over fashion.

I used about half a ball of Artyarns Handpaint Stripes Supermerino in colorway 107. Which means I have half a ball left if anyone wants one (or wants to make their own, it’s supereasy).
