I wrote this tutorial last year and offered it in PDF format. Now it’s here on my blog, and as I find uses for my lace, I will add photos to give you all ideas of what can be done.
This is roughly the way I did my lace trim, however since this is the first time I’m putting together this particular tutorial, there may be some bugs that still need to be worked out. I would recommend that this tutorial be used by seasoned crocheters, just in case there are any mistakes in my pattern. Once I work out the bugs on this, I can recommend it for new crocheters. If you happen to try it and find any bugs, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make the proper adjustments to the pattern. Thanks!
NOTE: This should make a little over a yard of trim.
What you need:
Size 7 steel crochet hook
Size 10 mercerized cotton crochet thread (I use Aunt Lydia’s)
Row 1: Chain 263.
Row 2: Turn, skip 1, SC in every stitch.
Row 3: Turn, chain 5, skip 2, *dc, chain 2*. Repeat until you arrive at the end of the row. (You’ll end with a DC.)
Row 4: Turn, chain 1, *2 sc in gap, 1 sc in the top of the next stitch (double crochet)*, repeat until you get to the end.
Row 5: Turn, chain 3, skip 1, 4 DC in next stitch, skip 1 stitch, 2 slip stitch in the next two stitches; *skip 1, 5 DC in next stitch, skip 1, 2 slip stitch in the next two stitches*. (You should end with 53 scallops.) Fasten off. Weave in the loose end of yarn by threading it through a blunt tip needle and weaving it through several stitches. (I wove it up the side and through row 1 to prevent future unraveling since I would be using mine on clothing.)
You’re done! Now feel free to use it on clothing, crafts, etc. I’d love to see how you used yours, so please email me your photos!
