Skill Level = Intermediate
One size = woman's medium (7 to 7-1/2" hand measured around the hand just above the thumb) although the ribbed hand allows for a wide varience in size.
Knit with fingering or sport weight yarn. Knit on size 2 (US) two circulars needles or the Magic Loop method, requires lace knitting, picking up stitches, knitting in the round, basic crochet, incorporating beads in knitting (optional), and following a chart (optional, as written directions are supplied too).
"Dragon Paws" are bejeweled hand warmers with pointed ruffles resembling the graceful sweep of a dragon's wing. Designed to use all those fabulous little leftovers of sock yarn, pick four or five colors that play well together. Beads are optional.
They are hand warmers with flare... and frills and bling. I started playing with ruffle designs and came up with one that looks like a dragon wing (well, to me, in my world). I added a few beads because a girl needs a little sparkle. Then it needed another ruffle. And since it was so fun, I threw in another ruffle and a few more beads. The results are pure extravagance and fun to wear. I've made a few by now and discovered that depending on the yarns and colors you use they can be quite prissy and girly, steampunk or goth, elegant or posh. Oh, they keep your hands warm too - at the keyboard, driving the kids to soccer, or playing the cello at the Met. I popped in Starbucks to grab my required cappuccino on the way to work and barely got out with my personal pair still on me! Their reception has been a heady experience.
