Looking for a pretty scalloped crochet edging pattern? If so, this double crochet arches edging is worthy of your consideration. This is an easy pattern.

This edging is suitable for use on straight, corner-less edges. I originally designed it because I wanted to use it on an infinity scarf. This design would also be lovely for finishing off skirts, dresser scarf edges, table runners edges, sheets, towels, or pillowcases. There are bunches of other ways to use it, so feel free to get creative.

Abbreviations Used in This Pattern:

 

For most purposes, I would suggest working a plain row of single crochet as row 1.

Then use this basic stitch repeat, as follows, for row 2: [ch 3, dc in next st, ch 3, sl st in next st, sl st in next st.] Repeat. When you make the last scallop at the end of the row, you can omit the last sl st unless you need it for some reason. When you’re working in rounds, like for example if you are working the edging around the edge of an infinity scarf, you probably want to go ahead and complete it to keep your spacing between scallops even.

The basic stitch repeat for this design is a multiple of 3 stitches. If you’re starting a new project from scratch, you’ll probably need to add some additional stitches onto your starting chain to end up with the right number of stitches all together.

If you want to work the edging exactly as pictured, the pattern would be a little different. Mind you, I don’t particularly recommend this, because I think this scallop isn’t quite dramatic enough, or quite the right size to do justice to the design underneath. But if you like it and want to use it, this is what you could do:

Row 1: single crochet all the way across.

Row 2: the basic pattern repeat is [work 1 dc in each of the next 2 sts, ch 2, skip next 2 sts.] Repeat.

If you are working in rows, you would do this: ch 3; this counts as your first dc st. dc in next st. [ch 2, skip next 2 sts, work 1 dc in each of the next 2 sts] Repeat.

If you’re working in rounds, do this: ch 3; this counts as your first dc st in the round. dc in next st, ch 2, skip next 2 sts. [work 1 dc in each of the next 2 sts, ch 2, skip next 2 sts.] Repeat. At the end of the round, sl st to join the end of the round to the beginning.

Row 3: single crochet all the way across.

Row 4: [ch 3, dc in next st, ch 3, sl st in next st, sl st in next st.] Repeat.

So there you have it: That’s how to crochet the free double arches edging pattern. We hope you’ll find lots of uses for this simple, pretty crocheted edging. Happy crocheting!

    Just found this on Rav and wanted to say thanks for the pattern, Amy. I am using it to do some Christmas tea towel edgings to put in gift baskets for my coworkers along with coffees and snacks. I’m using red crochet thread for some of them and green for some of them. So far I’ve done 5 and I am in love with them. Only 15 more to go to get my gift baskets done, and then I want to make a few more to keep. Thanks again.
