This is a great pattern for edging baby blankets to clothing items, it is one to hang on to!

Abbreviations: ch = chain dc = double crochet 
sk = skip sl st = slip stitch 
st = stitc

Materials: Use thread size or yarn weight of your choice. With size 10 thread and a US size 8 steel hook, edging is about 3/4 inch wide, at widest point.

Starting Chain: Make a starting chain of length needed or begin with row 1 to work directly into the edge of fabric or into an afghan edge. 

Row 1: Sc in ea chain or make sc stitches directly into fabric or into an afghan edge. 
Row 2: Ch 4, * sk 1, dc in next st, ch 1, repeat from * across. Turn. 
Row 3 - (Step 1): Ch 6, skip 2 ch-1 spaces, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 1, turn, 8 sc in ch-6 space just made, turn. 
Row 3 - (Step 2): Ch 1, 1 dc in each of the 8 sc just made, 1 sc in each of next 2 ch-1 spaces (these ch-1 spaces are in row 2). 
Row 3 Repeats: Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to form each scallop across the row. 
Row 4: In each scallop across the row: (Ch 1, 1 sl st) between each dc of scallop, then sc in each of next 2 sc (in between scallops). Note: The sl st is not done in the loops usually worked in (that's at the top of each dc) but is done by inserting the hook in between the posts of two double crochet, then pulling the yarn or thread through to complete the slip stitch. This creates a slight gap in between each double crochet, which is part of the look of this design. 
End off.
