I'm back again! After a long hiatus, I've decided to start blogging again. However, instead of showing you a manicure I wanted to do something special. Fall is around the corner and it's time to get prepared :)
Thus, I made some cozy fingerless gloves! The pattern is called "crocodile stitch", but hey! Dragons are way cooler ;) I used a crochet hook size 3mm and a bordeaux gradient yarn by Wolle Rödel (200m/50g). The color is beautiful and just perfect for the "Smaug" look. Of course you can also use different colors. Light colors will make the gloves really elegant and fairy-like. Brown yarn will transform your hands into pinecones. It's up to you.
Unfortunately, I can't give you a detailed tutorial, but I will try my best to explain it. Follow the instructions of Meladora's video tutorial, but crochet only 8 rows of scales. Next, connect the last and the first scale of the 8th row with a slip stitch. Crochet 4 rows of scales and, finally, make the cuff. I made it with double crochet stitches, but you can use other methods. And that's it! It looks very complicated, but it isn't.
What do you think? Will you try it out?
Have a nice Sunday!
