### A 3-Square, Square-mesh Scallop Edge with an extra outer point and 2 Final Scallops

This Extra Outer Point Scallop uses two scallops to form the right vertical side. It has a border of 9 squares, 3 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 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (3 loops in the row)
3              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (4 loops in the row)
4              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (5 loops in the row)
5              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (6 loops in the row)
6              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (7 loops in the row)
7              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (8 loops in the row)
8              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (9 loops in the row)
9              Net 1 knot in each loop. (9 loops in the row)
11           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (10 loops in the row)
12           Net 1 knot in each loop. (10 loops in the row)
13           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (11 loops in the row)
14           Net 1 knot in each loop. (11 loops in the row)
15           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (12 loops in the row)
16           Net 1 knot in each loop. (12 loops in the row)
17           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (13 loops in the row)
18           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. (13 loops, 14 knots in the row)
19           Net 1 knot in each loop for 10 loops (do NOT net in any more loops for this row), turn the netting and prepare to start the next row, leaving the other 3 loops to form one side of the Vandyke.   (10 loops in the row)

Repeating Vandyke
12-19     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. (11 loops in the row)
2              Net 1 knot in each loop. (11 loops in the row)
3              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (12 loops in the row)
4              Net 1 knot in each loop. (12 loops in the row)
5              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (13 loops in the row)
6              Net 1 knot in each loop. (13 loops in the row)
7              Without a mesh stick net 1 knot in the first loop, now with a mesh stick net 1 knot in each loop. (12 loops in the row)
8              Net 1 knot in each loop for 9 loops (do NOT net in any more loops for this row), turn the netting and prepare to start the next row, leaving the other 3 loops to form one side of the Vandyke.   (9 loops in the row)
9              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together.  (8 loops in row)
10           Net 1 knot in each loop. (8 loops in the row)
11           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together.  (7 loops in row)
12           Net 1 knot in each loop. (7 loops in the row)
13           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together.  (6 loops in row)
14           Net 1 knot in each loop. (6 loops in the row)
15           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.
