With out seeing the pattern i will make a two way answer.
1:I would guess it's reverse stocking stitch.
2:you could use garter stitch.
Hope that helps.Happy knitting. :lol: :lol:

They look great, but where would you find squamas to add?
As for the knitting, it's plain, with the purl side on the outside.

My son wants me to make these and I'm just wondering what stitch should I use? I would have to sew the scales into the yarn.
I would use garter stitch in the round, when I came to add a scale slip stitch onto a holder ,place scale on crochet hook or dental floss put stitch behind scale and pull thread through scale hole. Put loop back on left needle and knit or purl the stitch as pattern calls for.

The scales are a style of Paillettes. If you Google it you will see all kinds. Iridescent ones, metallic ones and different shapes.

the pattern in the link also called the 'Scale Mailes' the pattern is great if you can't figure this out on your own I think the price they are asking for the patter is so worth it.. think of all the time and headache saved :) plus I think they look just the same... it would also be nice in those large sequense that are jewel colored.. would make a great addition to a Mardi Gras type party.. hmmm maybe New Years!!!
