Upcycling was never this easy!
Scalloped edges, you can add them to almost everything! Not only can they be attached to the edges of your crochet or knitting, you can add them anywhere you want. In the doily you see above, I added the scallops in the centre! Want to know how to do this? Continue reading and you’ll find out!

To make the first stitch, pull up a loop through the first gap. Then, repeat the following steps (also see pictures above):
Step 1: Place your hook through the next gap and pull up a loop
Step 2: You now have 2 loops on your hook
Step 3: Finish the single crochet by doing a yarn over and pulling the yarn through both loops.
Just like this..
Time to crochet the scallops! You crochet these in the stitches of the previous round, like this:
Skip 1 stitch, 6 double crochets in the next stitch, skip 1 stitch, slip stitch in the next stitch.
Repeat until the end of the row/round. If the last scallop doesn’t quite fit on your number of stitches, try to adjust it to the number of stitches that you have left. If you have more stitches than you need, try to stretch the scallop by skipping 2 stitches. If you have too few stitches, try to make it shorter by not skipping a stitch. You might want to crochet half-double-crochets when doing that.
