Adorable scallop-edged half apron. Directions are given for apron that measures about 12 inches tall. You can easily make the apron longer by increasing more rounds (half circle shape) and then adjusting the number of stitches on the waistband. Likewise, you can make the apron smaller by ceasing the increases at whatever row suits you. If you have any questions, please email me: lisa@goodknits.com. Enjoy!

Materials
Worsted weight yarn in 2 colors
5mm (H-8) hook
tapestry needle for weaving ends

Abbreviations
ch- chain
SC – single crochet
DC – double crochet
Hhdc – herringbone half-double crochet
rev sc – reverse single crochet (aka crab stitch)
slst – slip-stitch
WS- wrong side
RS- right side

Notes
the Ch 3 at the beginning of each row counts as 1 DC. At the end of each row, you must crochet into the top of the ch3.

Gauge
4 DC x 2 rows = 1″

Shell pattern:
*2 DC, 1 TR, 2 DC* into same stitch.
