For Hobbits, Elves and Khaleesis: Fingerless Dragon Scale Gloves

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!

Sea Blue / 644 (Kiko Sugar Mat Nail Lacquer)

I'm alive! Thanks for your sweet comments and mails <3  The reason for the hiatus is simple. I broke two nails. Two heavy folders fell on my hand. (Don't ask me how this happened. Only I am capable of such accidents...) I tried to rescue my nails by shaping them oval. Well! I hated the new shape and decided to wait and let my nails grow. It's good to be back. Today, I'm wearing Kiko Sea Blue from the Sugar Mat Collection. Nice, isn't it?
