Summer Blossom Throw – Week 7

Hey all! I’m so excited to jump right on in and get stitching this gorgeous mandala! A quick reminder, this is the free version of the pattern and DOES NOT INCLUDE the PDF pattern.

Scallop Edging


Repeat 21 times. 


Scalloped border is worked in rows, each scallop is worked individually. Weave in ends at the end of each scallop. Final border rounds are worked after all scalloped are complete. Also, sometimes stitch counts can get off, that’s okay. Adjusting the scallops by moving slip stitches will ensure all the scallops fit if needed. Don’t worry! I did it on my sample too!


Row 1: with RS facing, join Color B in any st around, ch 6, sk next 5 sts, sl st to next sc, ch 1, sk next sc, sl st in next sc, turn.

Fasten off. (12 Fptr, 24 sc)
