Even people who have never seen the musical “The Phantom of the Opera” know a few basic plot points: there’s a weird guy in a mask who is in love with a singer, he plays the organ at inappropriate times, and at some point the theater’s grand chandelier falls spectacularly. These opera-ready gloves were inspired by that last bit of common knowledge.

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!).

Many thanks to my testers FaeriesandPixies, Ilythya, NanaRector, and SnookiesOz, and to my tech editor Calalily for their help with this pattern.
