The Innsmouth look…

The webbed claw is finished – it’s a little more ‘Innsmouth degeneration’, than ‘dragon’s claw’, admittedly.

Pattern reproduced below, or alternatively, available as a PDF download, via ravelry.

Errata – Cast on originally given as 32 sts, now corrected to 28 sts.

  1. These should be warmer than regular gloves, since the fingers and thumb are not in separate little compartments.
    I’ll have to make this along with the Dracoclava!

  2. Love the pattern… tried 3 times to get the fingers… not doing well, what am I doing wrong…?
    The pattern really does not say to stay within a certain perimeter for every time you do a finger, so I’m confused. Can help? Thank you.
