I fell in love with this stitch pattern while swatching - how it visually meanders and flows, how it manages to look both soft, curvaceous & feminine, and strong & almost carved out at the same time. I love when a single thing seems to encompass opposites. The finished gloves are classic and clean-lined, but at the same time they have such visual impact. They add a dramatic touch to your winter wardrobe. Depending on how you style them, they could be classic/preppy, ultra feminine/vampish (think Bettie Page), Gothic, or Victorian.
