About the pattern

These fitted, wrist length gloves are my interpretation of the late 40’s, early 50’s ‘New Look’, that Ingrid Bergman shows so spectacularly as Alicia Huberman in „Notorious“. They are mostly monochrome and knit mainly in stockinette to recreate that uncluttered style, while the split cuffs, rows of contrasting slip stitch ridges and simple crochet edgings add interest to the design. Knit in stark, high contrast colors for a dramatic effect, or choose softer greys and light pinks for a more ladylike version.

About the book

Alfred Hitchcock is the world’s recognized master in the art of cinematic suspense. His films, particularly those from the 1940s–60s, offered a signature blend of mystery, glamor, and wry humor that movie-makers have been mimicking ever since. If Hitchcock can inspire the film industry, then why not knitters as well?

In this dramatic collection, knitwear designers hailing from seven different countries have taken inspiration from Hitchcock’s films to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind garments for you to knit. Whether you are planning a train ride to Mount Rushmore, a shopping excursion to a Bodega Bay bird shop, or simply a night peering out your rear window, this collection will keep you in the proper, stunning wardrobe for your Hitchcock adventures.
