I thought I could do it on my knitting machine despite many telling me I couldn't! I've been hand knitting Dragon Scale mitts and wondered if I could do it on my machine. My first attempts the scales were hung in the wrong place and wrong direction.
When I had an experienced machine knitter in my house like Richard Smith I thought I needed to pick his brain. He had great insight into looking for the obvious. This made me quit simplifying the method and quit over complicating it too. Once I could see how the scale should be placed in the knitting it was a breeze. I made the sample wristlet for an example.
