Stylish with an interesting construction - these crochet fingerless gloves are worked flat and use short rows to form a circle around the thumb. Because of this unusual construction, they are great to show off variegated yarn.
These mitts have an interesting wavy pattern in two colors. They are crocheted flat and each in one piece. They are started at the thumb, which is worked flat and joined into a tube. Afterwards, the main part starts with an additional chain, and then is worked back and forth around the thumb. Working through the back loop only gives them an interesting texture. There are different instructions for the left-hand and right-hand mitt because second mitt mirrors the first one.
Of course, Dragon Scale Fingerless Mitts are always season, and are loved not only by the fans of fantasy. While they make use of the unusual crocodile stitch, they aren’t hard. Consequently they have an awesome scale-like three dimensional pattern that interplays super well with the right choice of colors. Moreover, this technique may come in handy in other projects, so it’s good to learn and practice it.
