Aluminium Pangolin Knit Gloves by CraftyMutt Aluminium Pangolin Knit Gloves by CraftyMutt
This is one of my favourite commissions, a design requested by :iconaviatorfox: for part of a pangolin costume, and I really recommend a trip through her tumblr to meet all sorts of wonderful characters and all kinds of beautiful art!

In response to questions: if you'd like to learn how to make stuff like this check out the Scale Mail Tutorial Page for a free tutorial on a super simple to add scales and any feedback you can give to improve it is massively appreciated :D there's even a pattern for sale now as well as the free tutorial!

I personally really like this sandy yarn I got in for it, and using the new style bronze scales were great to use since I've been unable to get hold of any bronze scales for ages! Due to the nature of variegated yarn the colour of the yarn bit up the wrists will vary between pairs, and doesn't even match within the pair, but they look more natural that way :)

Want a custom made pair of your own design? Custom scale orders can be taken through CraftyMutt's Etsy through purchasing one of the standard custom orders or sending a message about something even more special like having scales all round the wrist!
You can alternatively order your own basic custom pair and find out even more information at CraftyMutt's Scale Mail Page where you'll see links to the information I need to make your own unique personally designed gauntlets and pouches :)
You can also see CraftyMutt on Facebook for more pictures, updates on what I'm doing and general crafty stuff!

BIGGER EDIT:
WHAT DID I EVEN, 5000 VIEWS?
I've been uploading stuff here for years and never had a reaction like this, or even thought I'd ever attract a reaction like this! I don't know what to do, I'm trying to keep up with comments and questions but I can only just manage only for ones with specific questions or ideas that I can reply to!
Can I just put here a blanket thanks to everyone who's favourited and commented so kindly!
EVERYBODY IS SO AWESOME THANK YOU
If I had the time and money I would knit you all a pair of gloves, but I can barely keep up with the few orders I already have so maybe someday if I get rich and famous and earn enough money to never work again you should take me up on that offer! (I'll advertise here if that happens)

You have over 10,000 views now, and you deserve every single one. Now I admit that I have absolutely no idea what 'pangolin' is, but this piece attracts me anyway, and here's why:
1. Scale-work. I fall for it every time.
2. Knitting! I'm a knitter too!
3. Natural colors. While outrageous, brilliant colors are nice, the bronze is so much more practical and pretty in it's own way.
4. It's beautiful.
