Lady Violet's Dinner Gauntlets

These gauntlets were designed for our Downton Abbey Mystery KAL 2013. The gauntlets are inspired by Dame Maggie Smith's character on Downton, Lady Violet Crowley, who is the matriarch of the family and incredibly feisty and hilarious. These fingerless mitts feature side ruching for a custom fit and feminine detail, an optional Rosebud Lace panel on top, and a lace border along the top edge to complete the Edwardian feel of these mitts. Don't be fooled by the extra frills on the mitts, the hand portion is no-nonsense stockinette and garter stitch making them perfect for everyday wear!
