Simple Tatted Scallop Edge

Workbasket May 1959 pg. 41



There is a similarity between this edging and the one from the Workbasket Oct. 1959 pg. 96 which was shared here on Oct. 22, 2019. Both have very few picots. Notice as you tat that the look of the tatting changes from light and airy to a more formal look.

CH = chain, p = picot, DS = double stitch, sep = separated by + = join



If your hanky does not have prepared spokes into which to join, then you need a cloth-piercing crochet hook to make holes. Also you may take an awl or pattern pricker and make holes around the edge by piercing.



Using ball thread and or shuttle/needle or two shuttles join thread to hanky near a corner and commence the edging. NOTE: Actually I do not recommend joining tatted lace directly to the cloth in this manner. The tatting will long outlast the cloth. If the tatting is instead sewn on afterwards then the cloth may be easily replaced.

The repeat for this pattern begins with a single chain, the first of four. After joining to the hanky on the 4th chain reverse the direction of the work, so you work back toward the start. Then reverse direction again to work the last row joining into the same spoke as first row. Zig zag fashion.



*Row A

CH 6 - 6 leave 3/8" bare thread space between joins
Repeat 3 times.

Change directions.

Row B

CH 6 + (join to p of last chain made)

CH 6 - 6 + (join into picot of previous row) 6 - 6 + (join again in next picot) 6 + (the last join is made into the first join in row A.)

Change directions.

Row C

CH 6 + (join into the same picot on row A)

CH 6 + (join into the free picot of row B)

CH 6 - 6 + (join in to free picot of row B, ch 6 + (second join into the last picot of row A)

CH 6 + (join into last join of row A)

That completes one repeat. Start again from * Row A. across sides and corner.

I notice a great similarity with Armenian Knotted Lace and this style of chains only tatting.
