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 1: Skip 1 Chain loop, Treble Crochet in the next Chain loop, Chain 2
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 🙂
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 😉
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 🙂
