Quick and Easy Tatted Scallops Edging Free Tatting Pattern!

In this particular tatted edge pattern, the creator wanted to create an edge that is made up of scallops, and no attachments are made except at the top of the scallop. It is a fun project to stitch, and it is also very quick. It is a fun project to stitch, and I hope that you enjoy it.

Two shuttles are used in this pattern, and this is a pattern for intermediate beginners. Because there is a little ring at the top of every scallop, it requires two shuttles. Although it is possible to do this by using the shoelace trick, it is not recommended since there is nothing else holding the little ring straight; it will twist and turn.

When stitched with size 40 thread, Lizbeth White Color 601 size 40 edging is approximately 1.75 inches (5 cm) in height and about 2-1/4 inches (7 cm) wide each time that each repeat is stitched.
