Playful Lace Scallop Edging

Your blankie is sure to be a hit with this super cute edging!


Your first round will be a chain loop round. So if your final blanket round is an SC round, then (SC, skip 1 stitch, chain 2) repeat around – in all 4 corners, work (SC, chain 2, SC).

If your final round is chain loops, just make sure you can work (SC, chain 2) loops around, putting (SC, chain 2, SC) in the 4 corners.

It will help if between corner chain loops, you have a number of chain that is a multiple of 6 + 5. Example: 35 chain loops between corners.


Playful Scallop Edging

Count 2 chain loops before any corner and join yarn. SC in same chain loop, treble crochet (TR) in corner chain loop, (chain 3, SC in top of TR) – Picot made – (TR, Picot) 6 more times, TR, skip 1 chain loop, SC in next chain loop. 7-Picot Scallop Corner made.

In next chain loop: 3 DC, Picot, 3 DC, SC in next chain loop. Meringue made.

Skip 1 chain loop, {(TR, Picot) 5 times, TR} skip 1 chain loop, SC in next chain loop. 5-Picot Scallop made.

Alternate between Meringue and Scallop across to next corner. In the corners, make your 7-Picot Scallop like before.

  1. I love the square in the last picture, where could I find the pattern for it? The edging goes so well with it, just so beautiful . Thank you

  2. How can I find the pattern for the solid color granny squares in multi-pink shades shown in the instructions for the Playful Lace Scallop edging? They have sort of a 4-point star or flower in the middle. They are beautiful and the lace edge sets them off so well – so delicate. Thanx

    • Ah this is a simple “flat braid join” – it is a freebie on my site, I think googling it will bring up my tutorial, but there are tons of YouTube vids out there.. Flat braid join ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

    • Also, I looked back, and this star square is actually from the book “crocheted afghans: 25 throws, wraps, and blanket to crochet” – it’s called “cream comforter”
