Treble Scallop Edging: Free Pattern

Treble Scallop Edging!

This edge starts with a foundation round of (SC, Chain 2, Skip 1 stitch) repeated, with (SC, Chain 2, SC) in the corners. Check out the before pic below to see this in action.

Here is what your piece will look like before each scallop.

Try this pretty edging in a built tough, but super soft DK weight yarn like:

Step 2: Single Crochet in the top side bars of the Treble Crochet that you’ve already done – (Picot made)

Step 3: Continue to make (Treble, Picot) until you have 5 Picots made. Treble Crochet once more to finish the Scallop

Step 4: Skip 1 Chain loop, SC in the next Chain loop to anchor the Scallop

That’s it! Easy-peasy 1 round scallop/picot lace edging ๐Ÿ™‚

Now for the corners..

If you’re a mega planner, then you’ve made your foundation round to have the correct amount of Chain loops made to end up with perfect corners. *I* prefer to relax and just let the artistic muse guide me ๐Ÿ˜‰

BUT that means I end up with extra Chain loops at the end of my row.. So, as shown in the pic below, I just did a little “floating picot” as follows:

SC to anchor Scallop, Chain 4, SC in third chain from hook, Chain 1, skip 1 Chain loop, SC in next Chain loop.

Work corner: Copy your instructions for the regular scallop, but instead of only working 5 picots, you’ll work 7.

When I got to the next corner, I had the correct amount of chains for a normal corner. So, I made the next corner as in the photo below. “But that’s not right!! But.. but.. SYMMETRYY?!”

I just make sure I have diagonal symmetry in this case, and it still makes for a beautiful edging. Diagonal corners will be identical, and all is well in the universe.

Bravo! Enjoy your pretty lace edging ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Mine didnt look the same either so i added a third chain and then single crochet through the first chaun. Turned out much better.

      1. Hello, I just love the blossom blanket that you have the free pattern for, but I would love to know the colours for the pink version not the apricot one.. I love the look of the old fashioned floral, perhaps it has mint green or duck egg blue ?? Thank you so very much for sharing.. Kind regards Vicki Turner, Queensland Australia ..

      2. Hi there! This is terrible, but I just pulled from my odds and ends to make these floral blankets. They are actually really great for using up yarn scraps because you don’t need too much of any one color. I even mixed yarn brands, so there are probably 4-5 different brands of yarn used. I’m sorry I can be of much help! Thank you for the kind word, and happy crafting to you!

  3. Thanks for sharing such a gorgeous edging. I’m always on the lookout for a new way to finish the baby blankets I crochet for my many grandnieces and nephews. You do lovely work and I appreciate your generosity!

  4. That is a lovely finishing to a hexagon pattern. I have also done a hexagon throw with the African wild flower, but I do not really like the half motives at the two ends. Any suggestions how I can fill them, as it is quite deep inlets. Thanks!

  6. Hello, love the colors and it’s a beautiful blanket. I was wondering if you have the pattern for finishing the blanket? The part you showed in the first picture where to start? Can’t seem to find a pattern to finish a hexagon blanket I’m working on. Thank you.

      1. Hello! From Vermont! I’m hoping you’re still monitoring this thread! Do you have a video of the stitch? Because I don’t think I’m doing it right

    1. Thank you! You could just start from the corner and work the edging, but it is a lot more pleasing to have them line up if the hexie size is suitable. It just gives it that subliminal zen doesn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜› – RC
