Lauren’s Dragon Scale Gloves

Yesterday I had the sudden urge to make my wonderful Slimming World consultant something for Christmas. A bit mad since I asked her on Facebook what her favourite colour was at 4pm and Group was today at half five!

Since Lauren didn’t have a preference and I have several balls of Red Heart Soft Prints in various colours, I opted for Garden Print for a pair of Dragon Scale Gloves.

RHSP is very soft, and easy to crochet with. I used a 4 mm hook to keep the stitches fairly tight and added an extra row of ‘scales’ at the cuff as I dislike making picots.

I managed to make them in time – less than 24 hours! – and Lauren was delighted. She loved the mottled effect of the yarn and the silky softness, and showed them off to everyone.
