Dragon Scale Mitts!

These are some gloves I made for my sister that she wanted. They are the Dragon Scale Mitts and I've had them done for a while and forgot to post them!

I had to modify the pattern though. I used Debbie Bliss Rialto, which is a worsted superwash wool, the nicest superwash I've ever touched. But as the pattern was written the gloves would have been way too large for her. Since her hands are the same size as mine (tiny!) I used my hands to downsize. I took out a whole pattern repeat (15 sts) and just followed the pattern as written otherwise. I really loved knitting these, they are super quick. I also love that the pattern stitch makes the cast on and off edges curve slightly.

I love that pattern - great job on picking the color and yarn, they look so cozy!
