I just crocheted a granny square blanket for my grandbaby and I would like to know how to put a nice easy scallop edge on it. I am a beginnner.

Thank you, Sondra

Hi, Sondra - Congrats on your grandbaby! An easy scallop edge pattern is:

Round 1: sc in each stitch around the blanket, with 3 sc in each corner, join with sl st in first sc
Round 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc), 4 dc in same stitch, sk 1, sc, sk 1, (5 dc, sk 1, sc, sk 1) around, join in top of first dc, finish off

Thank you so much. I have little resourses $$$ and lots of new babies around. Through your program I have finished some baby blankets that hopefully will be cherished (I love homemade stuff) . I really could not afford patterns at the store so you were a god sent. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
Warmly,
Lisa

Thanks, for the website. I used your shell stitch edging for a baby blanket that I made. It turned out very cute.
