We’re going to learn how to do an altered version of the scalloped stitch today, that is the crochet scalloped flower. This stitch gives the creations a smooth round finish. So, we’ve created two pretty flowers that are ideal for brightening up tops, jackets or bathroom linen but they could be a great idea for a summer blanket too.
We’ve chosen our Lincoln yarn in the colour Eyeshadow to do the crochet scalloped flower stitch. Glossy and wafer-thin, it’s ideal for giving flowers a delicate look.
Let’s get started.
Let’s learn how to crochet the scalloped flower stitch
Wrap the thread of the Lincoln yarn around your index finger on your left hand and in the loop that you get make a half stitch, then as follows:
1st round: 1 ch (= initial single crochet) and single crochet 15. Pull on the free end of the thread to tighten the loop and bind off this and the following round with 1 half stitch in the beginning stitch.
2nd round: 3 ch (= initial double crochet), 1 double crochet on the following single crochet, ch 2, 1 picot and 1 ch, * 1 double crochet on the following 2 single crochets, ch 2, 1 picot and ch 1 * rep from * to * another 6 times.
To do 1 picot ch 3, skip the 3 ch from the hook and work 1 single crochet in the following ch.
3rd round: ch 3 (= initial double crochet), 1 scalloped edging, 1 double crochet on the following double crochet. Ch 6, skip the following arch and the picot * 6 times, finish off with 1 double crochet on the following double crochet, 1 scalloped edging, 1 double crochet on the following double crochet, ch 3 and bind off the round with 1 double crochet on the initial stitch of the same round.
To do 1 scalloped edging ch 3 and 1 single crochet on the base of them.
4th round: ch 1 (initial single crochet), in the following scalloped edging work: * (3 double open crochet and then closed together, ch 5) twice and 3 double open crochet and then closed together; 1 single crochet in the arch of the following 6 ch * 7 times, in the last scalloped edging work: (3 double open crochet together, ch 5) twice and 3 double open crochet and then closed together.
Bind off the round with 1 half stitch in the initial stitch, break off the thread and blend it into the work.
From the 1st to the 2nd round carry out the part given, from the 3rd to the 4th round work from A to the 1st asterisk, repeat from * to * 6 times and finish off with the part that comes before A.
