Super Rainbow Dragon Fists of Awesome by CraftyMutt Super Rainbow Dragon Fists of Awesome by CraftyMutt
If you'd like to learn how to make something like this check out the Scale Mail Tutorial Page 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!

Okay, only one of them is in the photo, but I've finished the both of them now, and very proud! So many colours ^_^
It's by far the most colours I've ever included in one pair of gloves, and it was quite the challenge, and they'll be hanging around with me as a show pair for the Extra Long glove size for a while then selling at a discount price on CraftyMutt's Etsy

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 :)

If you dont mind me asking what type of material is it...What do you use for the wrap and what not, is it latex free? Ps can you do purple black and silver spiral design? I love these, got arthritis in my joints in my wrists as well been looking for a stylish wrap for them.

These are absolutely lovely - and I also never knew the Ring Lord delivered to the UK, which is great to find out!

I got halfway through reading on your latest upload of scale male knit gloves, and saw that you made a rainbow pair and flipped. These look awesome! OWO! I especially like the gold scales that run through the centers :3 I think that's a nice touch <3

That Is Awesome! It looks like the scales are metal here, so I ask: " Were they already made that way or did you make them? " Crazy question I know, but sometimes artists say that they made things themselves. However, it is truly amazing and you sure put in a lot of effort into making this. Well done :)

I buy the scales in from somebody who makes them, they're aluminium and designed for use with metal chain mail really but I did a few experiments and it turns out they work really well on knitting too! Each scale is individually knit onto the fabric as you make the glove, so it takes much longer to knit than a standard pair of knitted gloves (and it's really awkward if you have to undo a few rows to fix a mistake!) but I love the effect :)

I buy from TheRingLord, they've got a lot of variety and they're the best value I can find even with postage included in the calculations all the way to the UK! They're a Canada based seller, so it should be pretty convenient for US customers.
