Free Pattern: Magical Mermaid Fingerless Gloves

I’m sure you’ve seen photos of the AMAZING dragon scale fingerless gloves that have been making their rounds on the interwebs. They are absolutely fabulous. And I just had to make a pair. There are a number of patterns that have already been written for these gloves, and I tried out several of them, but found them to either be too confusing or too bulky or not full enough. So I worked on my own pattern, and it’s available here for free!

I made these with a specific person in mind because the pattern and the yarn I used were just too perfect for her. And she’s my magical mermaid, thus the name. 😉

For these fingerless mitts, I used Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Parrot, but of course, you can use any LIGHT worsted weight yarn. Be sure to choose a color-variegated yarn. This pattern does not look as magical or as pretty in a solid color. I promise. Also, I think I used a little over one skein of yarn. I’m not entirely sure because I used a bit of leftover yarn, then used a new skein… Crocodile stitches use A LOT of yarn, so just be prepared.
