A Basic 7-Square, Square-mesh Scallop edge with 1 Final Scallop


This Basic Scallop uses just one scallop to form the right vertical side. It has a border of 4 squares, 3 points along each side of a scallop, and 7 squares across the bottom of the scallop.






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 one 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. (5 loops in the row)
6              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (6 loops in the row)
7              Net 1 knot in each loop. (6 loops in the row)
8              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (7 loops in the row)
9              Net 1 knot in each loop. (7 loops in the row)
10           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (8 loops in the row)
11           Net 1 knot in each loop. (8 loops in the row)
12           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (9 loops in the row)
13           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (8 loops in the row)
14           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (9 loops in the row)
15           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (8 loops in the row)
16           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)
17           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
6-17        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. (8 loops in the row)
8              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together.  (7 loops in the row)
9              Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together.  (6 loops in the row)
10           Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together.  (5 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. (3 loops and 4 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.
