Dragon Scale Fingerless Mitts come back every season, and are loved not only by the fans of fantasy. These magical designs use crocodile stitch, which creates this amazing scale-like three dimensional pattern. What was the first inspiration – a crocodile, a dragon or a fish? Who knows? The combinations are endless, though. You can mix it with granny stripe, shells or simple rows of single crochet. Make them bright and vibrant or elegantly subdued, evoking the colors of fall. Such mittens require some patience, but the final product is outstanding, so it’s really worth every minute. If you haven’t tried crocodile stitch yet, this is a great opportunity – it’s versatile and used in many different projects. This decorative technique may come in handy in the future, so it’s good to have it in your arsenal of skills. Links to free patterns are under the pictures.
