Scallops or no scallops?

Just a quick post in my lunchbreak to ask your advice.......


Should I scallop?


Or just have this chained edging?

I've done half of the scalloping but I'm rather liking the simplicity of the chain instead - the scallops don't really lie flat. 

Should I unpick it? 

What do you think?

Let me know your thoughts and I will put names into a hat for a crocheted flower brooch to be picked tomorrow xx

No scallops I think xxx

Flat! :) The scalloped is pretty but I prefer the flat.

Gina said...

In my humble opinion... flat!

itsjustperi said...

I'm going flat too x

Andrea said...

I think the simple chain edge - beautiful x

Thimbleanna said...

Now see? This always happens when you ask for opinions. Someone has to go against the grain. That someone is me ;-D (I like the scallops, she whispers)

But really, either version will work -- it's beautiful!

Daisie said...

Both are beautiful but the chain stitched edging is nicer (or at least I think so), it's your blanket though so you should have the last word (don't listen to Dottie!!) xx

Well I'm no help at all because I like them both equally so I'd have exactly the same dilema as you Lucy! It looks wonderful though, whichever way you go with the edging xxx

anne bebbington said...

go with the chain - it looks more delicate I think - both very pretty though

Less is more, as they say. I'd go for the flat - no scallop. Loving your colour combo. I so wish I could crochet!

Ali said...

I like the chained edge, but I'm no crochet guru, so pay no attention to me!

Chris said...

Scallops - so pretty!

It looks pretty either way but I think that the chain edge is better.

Thanks for stopping by my blog x

Ooh I love the way the flat looks, very different and makes it look fantastic. What a great effect.

rachelmp said...

I like the simple chain too

Helenjean said...

I have been enjoying your blog and that of thimbleanna. The world of blogging is new to me., but I think the chain stitch is lovely - very clean and fresh looking as we say here in Northern Ireland .

Jane P said...

The blanket looks wonderful by the way!
I think both edges look great - but if I had to choose one, it would be flat.

They are both pretty but I like the way the flat works with the rest of the blanket

Quinn said...

Back and forth a dozen times, and the one I like best is whichever one I am looking at! No help at all , I'm afraid ...sorry! Love them both.
