These gloves were inspired by Eastern henna body painting traditions. In my research, I was fascinated by the traditions that cherished brides and helped give rest to new mothers.
The gloves are knit flat with two distinct panels which are seamed on the thumb side. The top panel is the stockinette color work pattern and the bottom panel is (K2 P2) rib pattern.
8 stitches = 1" (2.5cm) in stockinette stitch
Started seriously knitting back in college and have done it on and off over the years. Came back to it in full force in 2004, learned to knit socks in 2007, became a knitting teacher in 2007, and started designing in 2010.
About designing: I consider hand knits as art for the body. Each piece should be beautiful, and unique for the wearer.
