This is the basic construction of the edging. Note the double line on the upper side makes it look as if there is a second row of tatting which attaches to the scallop section. However, the order of tatting makes its possible to tat this design in one pass.

Now that you have a dainty motif or a long edging, what are you going to do with it? May I suggest using it in a collar? Consider using your new motif to replace the motif used in this vintage collar. The full details are given on page https://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art305093.asp

The header and next two rows may be tatted as illustrated. The nine-point motif with the clover in the center may be replaced by this new motif by Hees. Reproduce the last row joining to whatever picot is the closet as you go across.
