PATTERN DETAILS

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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round Increasing Decreasing Following a chart GAUGE 32 sts = 4" in stockinette stitch in the round. 36 sts = 4" in pattern stitch in the round, unblocked/unstretched.

I've been blissfully obsessed with creating things since way back when my legs were too short to reach the floor while sitting at a table. I LOVE to knit (and sew, and have been meaning to learn a little more crochet...). Aside from my crafty obsessions, I adore books, audio books, feeding the people I love, colors, nature, playing outside, a good nights sleep, learning new things, daydreaming, pondering the ridiculousness of the world, nerdy history and science related books/shows/movies, how I feel after vigorous activity, finding new things to love, catching glimpses of what the world looks like through my daughter's eyes, cute furry animals, this list could go on and on .... I think the online community for crafty people is amazing, and I'm so glad to be a part of it. =)
