The back of the hand has tracery lace that is reminiscent of the chandelier’s chains, while the drop lace pattern on the hand reminds one of the crystals. The gloves are knit flat and shaped from the finger loop up to the mid-arm with simple increases, then seamed up the underarm. Since there is no shaping for fingers this project will be ready for opening night even if you start it at the dress rehearsal. The dramatic statement they make is good for any diva (operatic or not!).
