How to Make V-Stitch Shells Border
Are you a beginner looking for a quick and easy way to add a beautiful scalloped edge to your blanket or other crochet projects? Adding a beautiful border to a crocheted project can make all the difference. Look no further than the V-Stitch Shells Border! This border is created by crocheting double crochet shells on a row of V-stitches, resulting in an elegant finish. The V-Stitch Shells Border can be used on square, rectangle, triangle, or straight edges, and can even be adapted to round edges like a dress. To get started, it's recommended to crochet a base row before beginning the border. Check out the base row tutorial for blankets with double crochet or treble rows to learn how to make a base row based on your specific project. The written pattern and step-by-step video tutorial with photos can be found below, including tips on how to customize this pattern to any type of edge.
This border requires you to have even numbers of stitches, but if you don’t, I am showing you in the video tutorial how to adjust the pattern
The sections between * * and between ** ** are the sections that need to be repeated. The ** ** section includes the ones between * *.
The section between ( ) is made in the same stitch.
This border is crocheted in the round without turning, each round is closed with an sl st
Round 1: Join the yarn in the corner stitch. (Ch4 (counts as a dc + 1ch), Dc, ch1, V-st) in the same stitch where you joined, sk1, *V-st, sk1*, repeat from * until you have reached the next corner stitch, ** (V-st, ch1, V-st) in the corner stitch, sk1, *V-st, sk1*, repeat from * until you have reached the next corner stitch **, repeat the whole section from ** on each side of your project until you have reached the ch4 you have made at the beginning of your round, sl st in the 3rd chain from base to close the round.
Round 2: **sc in the next V-st, 7dc in the ch1 space between the V-sts made in the corner, sc in the next V-st, *sc in the next space between the V-sts, sc in the next V-st, 7dc in the next V-st, sc in next V-st*, repeat from * until you reach the 2 V-sts made in the corner, sc in the next space between the V-sts**, repeat the whole section from ** on each side of your project and you have reached the first sc you have made in this round, sl st in that sc to close the round.
I am a beginner but have to wait as I have to buy everything again as when I was on the hospital my home was trashed & 2 sewing machines were stolen, one was an antique from my grandmother and all my quilting materials yarn and everything we're gone and I do not know why and why they would do what they did but I am starting all over again and trying to get 50 that were destroyed and taken. My grandmother was going to teach me and she passed away before that happened so I want to honor her and enjoy everything that she was going to show me. So I might be slow and getting what I need but I am very interested in your teachings. Bless you and your family and thank you.
