Scale Mail Knitted Gauntlets by CraftyMutt Scale Mail Knitted Gauntlets by CraftyMutt
UPDATE: Pattern now on sale! So you can make your own :)

Two of my most recent orders, the bronze pair is already sold but the rainbow one is still possibly on sale if you're interested the rainbow one has sold too!
Feel free to request a similar design again though, I love rainbow gloves ^^

Want a 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!
You can alternatively order your own custom pair and find out even more information at CraftyMutt's Scale Mail Page where you can find the information I need to make your own unique personally designed gauntlets, and where to send orders :)

If you want to take your first steps towards learning to make these for yourself check out some DIY Scalemail info.

For reference these are two regular length gauntlets, the rainbow one in medium womans size and the bronze in medium mans.
PLEASE NOTE: Bronze is currently out of stock with my supplier and I can't get any right now D: noooooooo...

My favourite thing about these gloves are the noise they make when you stroke the scales... but I also love how fun they are to make, how many different designs are possible and how comfy and warm they are due to an entirely knitted base covering the hand into which scales are incorporated in a way which they do not make skin contact so there's nothing cold or scratchy :D
They're also knitted directly into the fabric so they can't fall off unless you pull them so hard you sever the material itself!

Not my best picture quality due to trying to take a photo of both my hands at once :P

Where do you buy the scales at?
How would you phrase what those are called?

about how many small scales do you use for a pair of gloves?? And the scales only cover the top half right?? I have been working with the larger ones and wish to try out the smaller scales for a pair of gloves. They are very beautiful though I enjoy looking at them and can't wait to make myself a pair! Keep up the good work though!! (I just don't knit mine in since I don't have any knitting needles so I taught myself how to crochet with scales ^.^
