Crochet Arc Lace Edging #1

Updated on November 30, 2017
MoiraCrochets profile image

Moira has been crocheting since she was 14 years old. She loves experimenting with small crochet projects.

I originally intended to create a crochet cloth with circular pattern similar to Catherine Wheels yet bigger and lacier in effect. To my dismay, my problem-solving skills is not enough to make such pattern come to life.

So instead of a crochet cloth, I used the initial pattern I made for a lace edging. The great thing about this lace edging is that each arc is crocheted one after the other. Therefore, gauge and foundation chain are not very important. I can crochet any number of arcs until I have the length I desire.

This lace edging is perfect as a trim for blankets, afghans, throws, curtains, dresses, etc. to name a few.

Skill Level: Easy

The stitches required are fairly basic.

Notes

I wrote two patterns for this arc. The first option is when you want to sew it onto an edge, while the second option is when you want to crochet it directly on an edge.

The photos I have here shows the first option only for I don't have any edge yet that I want to crochet this with. (I've got to think of one.)

Crochet Pattern

When you want to sew it onto an edge...

First option:

To make an arc:

Foundation Chain: Ch 9, TURN.

Row 1: 7 sc in 2nd ch from hook, sl st the next 2 ch, TURN.

Row 2: (Ch 1, hdc in sc) 7x, ch 3, TURN.

Row 3: Sk 1st dc, (2dc in ch-1 sp, 1 dc in hdc) 6x, 2 dc in last ch-1 sp, sk 2 foundation chains, sl st the last 3 ch, TURN.

Row 4: (Ch 4, sl st on third ch from hook, ch 1, sk 2 dc, dc in next dc) 7x.

Repeat these instructions from Foundation Chain to Row 4 for pattern until the length is enough.

If you want spaces between the arcs, just add more ch ains to the Foundation Chain.

Band: Ch 1, 15 sc per arc.

        My mother taught me crochet 'art' when I was seven. I am now 77 and love remembering those days. She made gorgeous doilies using the pineapple stitch. I have not mastered the art as well as she. I still enjoy sitting evenings, making caps, scarves, etc. Folks enjoy hand made gifts so much. So I give most everything away. It is truly an art.

        I have tried to follow the pattern for arc lace edging and am have trouble understanding your sc, half double crochet and double crochet. Half dc is that a treble and the double crochet a double treble, and your single crochet a half treble?

        This is a cool pattern, Moira! I like that you add to the foundation chain after you create each arc. Will bookmark the hub so I have it if I ever have need for this kind of crochet edging. Rated up and useful!!
