How do I do this? I am making some picky pants and I don't want to do the picot edging and I don't like the way the ruffle turned out. I want to do a small scalloped edge bind-off. Does anyone have some instructions for me?
Thanks


Additional notes- in my quest to find an answer, I discovered that some people call the picot and the scallop edge the same. My problem with lots of those edges is the hem dents where you seam it together and then you end up with a constantly flipping up edge. If a picot and scallop edge are the same, how do I stop the flipping up?

Don't know about scallop, but if you switch to needles two sizes or so smaller for the YO and finish row, it doesn't flip much.
