You say Scallops and I think Scallops

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

Scallops. For most people, when Scallops are mentioned, this is what they think of...

Scallops and Ravioli

Tender, sweet, buttery Scallops. Truly one of the sea's most cherished gifts. This photo was one of my memorable meals from Baltimore 2011. It was Scallops and Ravioli.

But, as this is a Needlepoint blog, we think of the other kind of scallops: a series of curved projections.

This scalloped design is a fun pattern to stitch. Currently, I am stitching a roof, and thought the Scallops would look nice for the roof tiles.

Here is another chart for you. Use it as diagramed with two different colors or values; use it with the same thread throughout... your choice.



Until the next time... Hugs, Robin
