pattern: free pattern here on the drops website. they have a ton of free patterns including the original panta pattern. a gazillion versions of this sweater can be found on ravelry. i linked to just my friends so that it wouldn’t be too overwhelming.
yarn: Tahki Tweedy Alpaca inherited from flo – 55% alpaca/45% wool
needles: size 7 US (4.5 mm) takumi bamboo straights if you can believe it. they’re what i found first.
size: medium in the worsted weight version, it blocked out nicely to about 2 inches longer with lovely long arms.
what can i say? i knew i needed this sweater when i first saw it and it is perfect (except some of my shoddy seaming :). i more than love it. the drape is elegant, the color is gorgeous, and frankly, those buttons just make me smile. plus, the accent stitching might just be one of my all time favorite stitches whether you call it double moss stitch, double seed stitch, or some other name. sigh. now to find as many occasions to wear it to before it hits 80 and stays there (in the 50s today though, so that’s a bit of luck).
