How to Knit the Scallop Edging

Stitch Description

The scallop edging stitch is lace border with an angular scalloped design. The diamond like motifs consist of V like eyelet patterns, which are repeated to create the scallop edge. This border is worked separately and then sewn on afterward.

It would look great as a finishing to a shawl, blanket, or scarf.
