I saw Sweeney Todd last week and (being the OCD Knitter I can be) I noticed that in the first 1/3 or so of the film "Sweeney" is wearing a pair of fingerless mitt/gauntlet things with thumbs. There's a brief close-up of them which allows one to get an idea of the pattern. It looks like some kind of pattern of small knit circles on a background of purl stitches, but it was so brief that I'm not certain that it wasn't seed stitch. I *need* to make a pair!
I've combed the 'net for production stills, but none of the ones I find show anything close enough to make a determination.
Here are my questions to you:
1) Can you confirm what I saw?
2) Can you tell me what this stitch is called (if it is not seed stitch)?
3) I'm more than willing to go at it freestyle, but if you know of a pattern for gauntlets like these, or a pair very similar, I'd love to know about it. :o)
