This wide scalloped crocheted piece could be used as a trim, edging or an insertion, but don't let the name hinder you from dreaming up additional creative ways you could use it.

Skill Level: Very easy / beginner

This pattern is easy enough for a total beginner. If you are a total beginner, I do recommend that you try working a square of regular rows of single crochet before starting this pattern, if you haven't already. That way, you can get a feel for what it’s like to work single crochet with a turning chain of ordinary length. The turning chain used in this pattern is longer than usual.


The sample edging was crocheted using worsted weight cotton yarn and a size H / 5.0 mm crochet hook. You can try this pattern with just about any fiber, thread, or yarn in any size you like.

Abbreviations Used in This Pattern:

Crochet Instructions:

Ch 10.

Row 1: sc in second ch from hook, and in each chain after. (9 sc.) Ch 3, turn.

Row 2: Work 1 sc in each sc st across. (9 sc.) Ch 3, turn.

Repeat row 2 until your piece is the desired length.

Finishing the Trim:

End off and weave in loose ends. Block if desired.
