Dragon Scale Mail Mitts Mismatch

Oopsie - this is why I knit everything (socks, sleeves, cardigan fronts, mitts) two at a time; the second (right) mitt is almost 2" shorter than the first.

I knit, crochet, spin, and have done some experimenting with weaving and natural dye. Iā€™m also a technical writer, mom to 3 boys, and enjoy gardening.

    1. It is a little frustrating, more than that, I can’t believe my measurements were so off when I started the thumb opening, which is where I went wrong. Oh well – the bright side is that I get to work a few more rows with scales, which is actually pretty fun.

      1. I lied, one last one for the road: turtle sweaters (so basically, vests with 4 armholes). Unicorn & narwhal horn cozies! Banana sweaters! Phew. I feel better now. Thanks for loling along with me!

      2. Haha!
        Oh man, there’s an elephant I knitted for my first son that needed four double pointed needles at once. I kept making the legs different lengths and then having to redo it. Over and over and over.
        I finished the damn thing and haven’t knitted anything since haha. Crochet is so much easier

    1. Thank you! A friend commissioned them for her son, so they really do need to be the same size. If they were for me, I probably would leave them as is because the right one does show off my tattoo rather nicely.

    1. Have you ever knit with beads? Attaching them is the same as one method for attaching beads – instead of pre-stringing the scales (one method for knitting with beads), you knit (well, purl) them together with a stitch so both legs of the stitch go through the scale. It does take a little extra time, but they are fun to work with!
