Crochet Picot Scallops Edging – Pattern Description
Hi there crochet friend, today I have a new crochet border pattern for you: Simple Picot Scallops.
The Picot Scallops Border is a simple edging constructed with double crochet fans that have a picot stitch made at the top. You can easily crochet this border around any edge, blanket or garment.
I will also show you how to adjust the pattern in case you don’t have the required number of stitches on your edge. I is as simple as skipping extra stitches when making the fans. This makes it beginner-friendly and fast to crochet, giving a finished look to your project.
I recommend you crochet a base row on your edge before starting the border. Use any plain stitch for your base row, I always make a single crochet row around my blankets before crocheting any border.
If you are making this border for a blanket, check out my base row tutorial for blankets with double crochet rows or base row tutorial for blankets with treble rows to give you an idea of how a base row is made based on the different types of stitches your blanket rows are made with.
I also wrote a tutorial for an easy base border for c2c blankets which was designed specially for that crochet technique.

Crochet Picot Scallops Border – Pattern Instructions
- This border requires you to have multiples of 6sts plus 1 on each edge, but if you don’t, I am showing you in the video tutorial how to adjust the pattern. Basically, you are going to skip extra stitches to make sure the corner scallop matches the corner stitch.
- The section between ** is the section that needs to be repeated
Step 1: Corner Scallop
Join with a slip knot 3sts before the corner stitch, sk2, 6dc in the corner stitch, p st, 5dc in the same corner stitch, sk 2, sl st
Step 2: Edge Scallop
Sk2, 4dc in next st, p st, 3dc in the same st, sk2, sl st
Step 3: Crochet Scallops Along The Edge
Repeat step 2 along the edge until you have 3sts left on the edge (including the corner stitch)
Step 4: Picot Scallops Around Each Edge Of Your Project
Repeat Steps 1 – 3 on each side of your project, if you are crocheting around a blanket, repeat these steps 3 more times.
At the end of the round, sl st in the same stitch you started on Step 1 to close the round.
