Crochet hood with matching gauntlets by Arexandria Crochet hood with matching gauntlets by Arexandria
This is a matching hood and gauntlet set. They are both crocheted. The colors are called brown and Dark Olive. These were made for a silent auction at a medieval event I am attending. If you have any interest in something like this drop me a line. These are a larger size of gauntlet; however, I have made the small one for daintier arms as well.

Pattern provided by bonitapatterns.com.

The listing for the hood and gauntlets can be found on my etsy shop at:

This is crocodile stitch yes? I have been wanting to learn that! I love the look on the arms.

Yup, you can also find it as other names such as dragon stitch or mermaid stitch. If you can Double crochet (american DC) then you can for sure do this stitch! Many possibilities with it :D

silver and black! ^_^

lol seriously... there are tons of scale ideas, since Dragons come in all sorts of colors :)

the part that isn't scales could be any color that you could find leather in (just an idea)

This is gorgeous, and if you plan to make these to sell, having a theme of dragon "armor" would be awesome. :D I bet this would be popular for Ren-Fest. :D

I already do the dragon armor stuff, my super early work is posted, just havn't got pictures of my other stuff. I do the hand cut scales from all sorts of oil dyed thin flexible leathers in both the medium size and the small scales I have shown. I have the black and crimson scaled hood, but yes, black and silver is a good idea. Havn't thought of that. I just picked up a roll of oil dyed leather that is a silver dye just last week. It is in line to be cut into scales of both sizes at this time too. I am working on a crochet arming coat where the body is crochet with scales for the side leg flaps and then the arms will be leather sleeves with a chest buckle similar to that of Bran off of Game of Thrones.

This is just too awesome! I've just recently learned how to do the croc stitch not too long ago, but aside from being a bit tedious and greedy with the yarn, I love it.

Is that alligator stitch? I could never figure out how it works.

Well the official term is crocodile stitch yes. It looks alot more complicated then it really is :) It was fun to do though. I call it dragon stitch for the sake of my medieval stuff :)
