Dragon Scale Gloves

A topic of conversation at one of our crafty crops recently was the beautiful dragon scale gloves several of us crocheters had seen on Pinterest and other sites. I was intrigued and purchased a pattern from Ravelry as I thought I would see if I could master the stitch as Linda had requested a pair for her birthday.

I took some wool and the pattern on holiday to Scotland with me and made and made a pair in a pinks - cream - browns verigated yarn (Summer Meadow) using Drops Big Delight wool purchased from Little Woolie, London. This is 100% wool and the thickness varies as well as the shade. It works up as Aran weight. My only disappointment with this wool is the fact that there are joins in the 100gm ball.

On route to our destination in Skye I purchased some Colour Works Aran by Patons in Tropical Mix colours 111, 25% wool. Also available from Love Knitting.

I made several other pairs including plain black for my friend Sandra in Rowan Super Fine Merino Aran which I purchased from Crafty Needle, West Wickham. I forgot to photograph these before giving them away. x
