These are a belated Christmas gift to myself. The pattern was created by Aoibhe Ni Shuilleabhain and was featured in issue 5 (Dec./Jan.) of the UK magazine Inside Crochet.



I made my Dragon Gauntlets with Patons Kroy Socks FX in Clover. (It took about 1 and a half skeins) It's not the luxurious yarn recommended in the pattern materials, but I was considering these a practice pair since this was my first attempt at following UK crochet directions and the pattern was listed as "Intermediate." Thankfully the patten turned out to be quite simple to follow. If you've ever crocheted a shell stitch, you can make these. They are also fun and quick to work up. I finished this pair in a single weekend and can't wait to make another pair.







*Update: Just wanted to update this post to include a picture of a second pair that I've made. These ones are using MariSock Hand Painted in Colour #62 (http://www.puntayarns.com/all-yarns.htm)

Thanks for looking!

i really like the coloring that the yarn and this pattern make.   and the pattern makes them look very elegant, and almost like a lace, so i could see these in a white and a black

Thanks for the compliments. You're right, I think they would look really cool in black. Personally, I avoid white. Too afraid of getting it dirty, Smiley
