Question on scale shirt patterns

6 posts in this topic

What is the best way to come up with or see patterns for scale shirts? I was originally going to make a crusader outfit for the faire but after the faire in April I tried on the crusader helmet. It is very heavy and fully inclosed which is not what I want for the faires. So I am changing helmet styles and will no longer do the cross on the shirt. Now I am trying to figure out what pattern to use the gold scales on the shirt. Is there a program to help with? How does everyone else figure out there patterns or what it would look like randomized?

printing them out and colored pencils is how I do it, that way I can have the pattern nearby while I weave. I think they have ones for E4 too.

If your operating system is Windows, Irregular Grid Painter (IGP) has a scale pattern. Links are in my signature.
