Dragon Scale Fingerless Gloves – Free Pattern – Off The Hook

Hello everyone. With the continuation of the cold weather at the moment gloves are vital when going out. However I find it difficult to do anything in traditional gloves and much prefer fingerless ones. I designed these crochet dragon scale fingerless gloves for a friends teenage daughters. They look fantastic and are very warm.
