NOTES: With the edging, you will basically crochet evenly down the long sides. The only time the math will come into play is when you are doing the short ends of the wrap for the edging design. The short ends of the project should be multiples of 8 plus 5. For example, I had 77 stitches on the short ends which gave me the multiple of 8 plus 5 (77 – 5 = 72; 72 is a multiple of 8). Remember to include 1 (or two) st(s) from each corner 3 sc (1 sc belongs to the first side, 1 sc belongs to the corner – and can be used by one side or the other – and 1 sc belongs to the next side.)
Tip for short edge: Mark every 10th or 20th st to keep track of your st count. Aim for about 2 sts per row edge.
Rnd 1: With the right side facing, join with a sl st in the last st, work 2 sc in the same st, crochet evenly down the short side (keeping in mind you want to end on a multiple of 8 plus 5), working in underside of foundation chain at the base of the sts of first row, 3 sc in hdc, sc in each of next 2 sc, *3 sc in ch-3 sp, sc in next dc, 3 sc in next ch-3 sp, sc in each of next 4 sc, repeat from * until last ch-3 sp, 3 sc in last ch-3 sp, 3 sc in last dc, sc evenly up next short side (keeping in mind you want to end on a multiple of 8 plus 5), working along last edge, 3 sc in the 3rd ch of the ch-4, sc in the 4th ch of the ch-4, sc in next dc, ^3 sc in ch-3 sp, sc in each of next 4 sc, 3 sc in the next ch-3 sp, sc in next dc, 2 sc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next dc, repeat from ^ until last ch-3 sp, 3 sc in last ch-3 sp, sc in each of next 2 dc, 1 sc in first hdc, join with sl st to first sc. Fasten off. Weave in the ends.
Row 1: With right side facing, join to first st of either short side, ch 3, dc in next 4 sts, *ch 3, skip next 3 sts, dc in next 5 sts, repeat from * across, turn. (50 dc, 9 ch-3 sps)
Row 2: Sl st in first 2 sts, sc in next st, *ch 2, (dc, tr, ttr, picot, ttr, tr, dc) in next ch-3 sp, ch 2, skip next 2 sts, sc in next st, repeat from * across. Fasten off.
Repeat for other side. Weave in the ends.
