Pattern: Shells and V's Crochet Edging

I found this picture here on LaceForStudy.co.uk. Great website for all sorts of handmade and machine made vintage and antique lace.
Here is the link to the original lace. http://www.laceforstudy.org.uk/archives/purpose/16167/2193-english-domestic-crochet-edging/

Replicating antique and vintage crochet patterns is one of my hobbies, I really like antique lace, and would like to share this one here with you.

 Here is the pattern, please comment if you find any errors.
My Version of the Pattern:



Ch: chain
Sk: skip
**: repeat instructions between
Dc: double crochet
hdc: half double crochet
V stitch: hdc, ch 2, hdc


US crochet terms. Hook and thread of whatever suitable size.
  1. Ch 27, skip 4ch, *4dc, ch2, 4dc in next space, sk 4 ch*, repeat instructions between * twice more. Ch 3, sk 4 ch, dc in 4th chains, ch 2, sk 3 chains, dc in 3rd, ch 2, sk 3 chains, dc in last chain.
  2. Ch 5, turn, hdc, ch 2, hdc (V stitch made), ch 3, V stitch, ch 3, V stitch.
  3. Ch 3, sk 4 ch, dc in 4th chains, ch 2, sk 3 chains, dc in 3rd, ch 2, sk 3 chains, dc in last chain.
  4. Repeat from 2nd row.


I reserve the right to tweak the pattern if needed.
Here is the picture of the lace, borrowed from the website (and hosted here on my blogger). I created the pattern from the image.
