Time for our second project out of four projects of our first Bonita Patterns CALs event: “Stitching an American Dream”: Crocodile Stitch Fingerless Khaleesi Gloves. Today you can get the project supplies list and enter our Giveaway!!!
Who can resist making or wearing some fun and stylish fingerless gloves? As a lover of Game of Thrones (I don’t like to think we’re on the final season!! Oh well… we’ll just re-run, re-run and re-run when is over) I can’t stop imagining how “Daenerys Targaryen, the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regnant of the Seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons”, would look wearing these Crocodile Stitch these fingerless gloves.
This is a redux of one of my earliest patterns, the Crocodile Stitch Wristwarmers which have gone viral several times in the past. A great quick pattern that will turn heads and receive tons of compliments.
