Scallop Edging For Small Bags

Pattern Created by Sandi Marshall

Printing: Many newer printers will print fine from this page or you can use the Printer-Friendly Page. If only the ad at the top of the page prints, try this: before choosing the Print command, click on the pattern portion of the page (tells your printer what part of the page you want to print), then choose Print. Use Print Preview (click on File, then Print Preview at the top of your Internet browser) if you want to see ahead of time what will print.

This scallop design edging is sized for adding to small bags, with the example shown on a crocheted cell phone bag. The edging is worked over an area of 16 stitches. In the example shown, I crocheted it along the bottom edge of my Open Path Cell Phone Bag design.

Materials Used In The Example: Small amount worsted weight yarn, US size H hook
Finished Size of Edging: About 5 1/2 inches wide, at widest point x 1 3/4 inches tall
Abbreviations: ch = chain, dc = double crochet, ea = each, sc = single crochet, sl st = slip stitch, sp = space

How To Slip Stitch (sl st) = Insert hook in stitch, wrap yarn over hook, pull yarn through the stitch and through the loop on the hook, at the same time.

In this example, I used Caron Simply Soft Shadows yarn, color 0002 Plum Mist (a self-striping yarn with subtle color changes). This edging is shown added to my Open Path Cell Phone Bag. That pattern can be printed out from http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa081206.htm
