### A 7-Square, Square-mesh Scallop Edge with an extra outer point and 1 Final Scallop

This Extra Outer Point Scallop uses just one scallop to form the right vertical side. It has a border of 4 squares, 7 squares across the bottom of the scallop, 3 points along each inside edges of a scallop, and 4 points along the outer side of the right and left scallops.

The instructions for this scallop are as follows:

First Vandyke Scallop with straight vertical side
1 Net 2 knots in the foundation loop. (2 loops in the row)
2 Net one knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (3 loops in the row)
3 Net one knot in each loop except for the last loop, net knots in the last loop. (4 loops in the row)
4 Net 1 knot in each loop. (4 loops in the row)
5 Net one knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (5 loops in the row)
6 Net 1 knot in each loop. (5 loops in the row)
7 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (6 loops in the row)
8 Net 1 knot in each loop. (6 loops in the row)
9 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (7 loops in the row)
10 Net 1 knot in each loop. (7 loops in the row)
11 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (8 loops in the row)
12 Net 1 knot in each loop. (8 loops in the row)
13 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (9 loops in the row)
14 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (8 loops in the row)
15 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (9 loops in the row)
16 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (8 loops in the row)
17 Without a mesh stick, net 1 knot in the first loop, now with a mesh stick net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (9 knots, 8 loops in the row)
18 Net 1 knot in each loop for 5 loops, do NOT net in any more loops for this row. Turn the netting and begin the next row. (5 loops in the row)

Repeating Vandyke
7-18 Repeat instructions to create new Vandyke.

Final Vandyke
1 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (6 loops in the row)
2 Net 1 knot in each loop. (6 loops in the row)
3 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (7 loops in the row)
4 Net 1 knot in each loop. (7 loops in the row)
5 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (8 loops in the row)
6 Net 1 knot in each loop. (8 loops in the row)
7 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (9 loops in the row)
8 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (8 loops in the row)
9 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together.  (7 loops in the row)
10 Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together.  (6 loops in the row)
11 Without a mesh stick net 1 knot in the first loop, now with a mesh stick net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (4 loops and 5 knots)

Forming the first square of the netting
1. Remove the foundation loop from row 1 of the netting.
2. Tie the tail onto a tapestry needle, which is used in place of the netting needle.
3. Place the foundation-loop cord through another row of meshes.
4. Tie the foundation-loop cord into a circle and attach it to a tension device.
5. Net the first two loops together without using a mesh stick.
