On September 3, 2011, in cables, Eragon, fingerless mitts, Seven Fingerless Mittens, by Anna

As summer is winding down here in Canada, it’s time to start thinking about fall accessories.  I would like to introduce you to the Eragon fingerless mittens.  They are pair number four in my collection of Seven Fingerless Mittens – so there are three more to come before the year is up.

The Eragon gloves feature mock cables around the cuffs, which combined with the sparkly yarn (Twinkle Cat from Wandering Cat) makes them look like dragon scales.  And on the back of the hand is a stylized dragon wing.

There is a fitted thumb gusset, and the mock cable extends all the way up the thumb.

The palm of the hand is all stockinette for the sake of comfort.

These gloves have proved very popular in my house.  Before they were finished, they had already been claimed by my very own wanna-be dragon rider.  I barely had a chance to photograph them.  But now that they’ve been photographed (and released), the dragon rider has taken possession of her new gloves.  Now, if anyone knows where she can find a dragon egg, let me know.  :-)

    Thanks, Valerie. Yes, the yarn was fabulous. The stitch-definition is lovely. (And my daughter / a.k.a. the dragon rider absolutely loves the glitter). :-)
