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. 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 …

Lacy Peaks Edging: Free Pattern

Lacy Peaks Edging Tutorial This is a fabulous (and easy!) 5-round border option to work on my “Candy Puffs Blanket” pattern as pictured in the photos. Make Picot: Chain 2, SC in side bar of the previous HDC  just made. Foundation Rnd: On Rnd 1 (the next round), you will be working groups of 3DC all around, so your Foundation Rnd needs to set that up. In most cases, you can go ahead and work an SC or DC Foundation round, with 3SC or (3DC, Ch-2, 3DC) in the corners. On my blanket, I have a raw edge with puffs, chain loops, sideways DC stitches, and the lot (hopefully you can somewhat see this in the photos), so my raw edge here was not suitable for an SC or DC Foundation round. I chose instead to work (SC, Ch-3) repeat around, with the plan of making my Rnd 1 3DC groups in each Ch-3 loop. Rnd 1: If you have started with an SC or DC round, then work evenly spaced (3DC in next St, Skip 2 St) repeats …

Meringe Edging

Meringue Edging – Tutorial This edging can be used on a straight DC or a granny edge as in this project. If you’re doing a straight DC border, just skip 3 stitches between the shell and the SC like if it were a granny. I work a round of the border color first, so when I start, I’m not attaching new yarn. I finish the round in a chain 2 corner. Essentially the shell is: 3DC, Picot, 4DC *See how to make the Picot below* Edging: (SC, chain 1, 3DC, Picot, 6DC) in chain 2 corner (Corner shell made). *SC in the next ch2 space. (3DC, Picot, 4DC) in next ch2 sp* repeat across to the next corner. At my corners, I come to a shell at the end, when I should be SC-ing before the corner. I just play it off and do the corner shell anyway! It makes for a great leafy corner and I love it as an added piece of the design. Picot: After you 3DC, chain 3 Insert your hook …
