Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
circular knitting needles
yarn
small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)

    Hey all, I’ve updated the Hellborne Universe’s Masterpost, meaning it’s slightly less impossible to navigate the veritable heap of writing I’ve put on the internet that has consistent characters and setting. Wow. Look at those characters. Developing over time. Interacting with their surroundings. And each other! Who would have guessed.

    Not I. Not I.

    This is not a knitting post, but sometimes I write things and when I post them online I come off as passive aggressive by accident maybe? That was supposed to be glib or something.

     
  3. Decided to do second ‘boyfriend hat’ at same size but a few rows longer.

  5. Normally I accidentally reblog knitting posts on my personal tumblr, this is the first time I’ve crossed over a post meant for my art tumblr. Will fix when not on tablet.

    I love this hat so much, it came out so nice!! THERE WAS SO MUCH PAIN THOUGH.

    Thanks! My lys had that great hand-dyed variegated one and I paired it with some Sadnes Garn’s Sisu. I had so much doubt about it initially.

     
  7. Finishes hat while out and about. Puts hat on head. Takes pictures of hat when back at house. Belatedly realizes clothing matches hat.

    So I finished the 'boyfriend hat', I made it short so it’d match the size and fit of the toque I’ve had for ten years that is my toque that is the supreme toque out of all other toques for me, personally. Used the 176 stitch size. Have enough yarn left over to do a second hat, maybe will do the 192.

    This hat has been a long time coming ever since I frogged it, balled the two strands together, got that twisted and tangled BEYOND ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE and just further lamentations. Yay hat!

So useful! I am going to try to find the pattern. I don’t even care if I have to pay.

@carpinska I thought the post should track back through the pic, but not this one.
Looks like the pattern is in German but it’s a free download:

Good luck!

A translated free pattern can be found here:

Looks pretty straightforward and simple. Good Luck!

Danke!

This would be beautiful in ombre from white -> black. Something simple and yet intriguing! . (via Laura’s Loop: Trellis Scarf - The Purl Bee - Knitting Crochet Sewing Embroidery Crafts Patterns and Ideas!)
