The 1946 Hollywood drama with this one immortal scene: Featuring a dancing and singing, alluring Gilda and one looong glove!
... the dancing and singing is optional, of course!
Apart from the gauntlets or arm-warmers, that were designed as some kind of an extension to the ¾ sleeves of this garment (for days when we just need more warmth, up to the very end of our hand) - this pullover offers a casual and cozy fit with fine, delicate texture in the form of similar stitch patterns.
The diamond and the chevron stitch are quite easy to memorise and held in small scale, so that they don't weigh the quality of the fine fabric down too much.
To further enhance the striping of this design, different material has been chosen, so as to have a slightly mat fabric for the patterned stripes and a smoother one for the Stockinette sections. Both yarns are of light fingering weight and very affordable, while offering a vast choice of colours and extremely good quality: Mabel & Ivy Supersoft and Mabel & Ivy Coast yarn.
The GILDA Kits are available on the tangled-yarn site for a limited time: Until October 20th 2016.
I hope that you like Gilda, even if this one isn't even remotely related to her famous and sensual namesake, the "love goddess" of the 40's!
You can find the downloadable pattern PDF for the pullover + arm-warmers either here on the La Maison Rililie site or on ravelry.
