Something I’ve been having fun with lately: knitted scale mail/le!
Want to make your own? I’ll be writing up notes on what I did making these and putting that up here and on Ravelry soon enough (you might need to remind me), but for now:
1. Get scales (I ordered mine from TheRingLord.com—ships from Saskatchewan).
2. Add them to knitting! To make scales sit on the right (outer) side of fabric, insert needle into next stitch purlwise, place scale on tip of righthand needle and purl the stitch, taking care to draw the yarn through both scale and stitch.
Crafty Mutt offers some neat tips and resources for adding scales to knitting (I referred to the instructions there as a starting point but have been following my own patterns).
Want me to make something scaly for you? Awesome! Check out my Etsy store or email me at crowknits at gmail dot com.
