I went to PAX East a couple weeks ago and saw someone wearing scale mail fingerless gloves that looked knitted. I figured it wouldn’t be that hard to recreate and I had some scales in my craft stash so I knitted a swatch.
It was super easy. It was easier to add scales to knitting than it was to add beads. I am going to swatch a little bit more and do some math and figure out how many scales to use.
