Blanket with larger scalloped edges

Question

This is kind of hard to explain in words, but I've attached a rough sketch of what I'm trying to make, so hopefully that will help. The project I'm working on is one of those blanket dolls where the "body" is a blanket but there's a stuffed animal or doll "head" on top (sorry, I don't know what they're actually called, but you can see my point in the sketch I've attached). I want the blanket portion to represent the doll's dress, so I'd love it to have a scalloped edge around the bottom/outer portion of the circle. However, all the patterns I've found online are for much smaller "scallops", as opposed to just 7 or 8 around the entirety of the blanket. Basically, what I'm trying to make is something similar to a round ripple-patterned blanket, but with the edges being rounded instead of pointed. I've been crocheting for years and know how to read patterns if anyone has one I could use, but I just haven't been able to find on online. Thanks for your help!

 

 

Here's a very rough sketch of the final project. I'd like the "base" of the doll (i.e. the blanket portion you can see more clearly in the top view) to be about 10'' in diameter. Sorry I'm not the best artist, but hopefully this gets the point across:

P.S. Sorry to post this in two different forums, I wasn't sure which one it would fit under better so I thought I'd give both a shot. I'm trying to finish this project quickly because it's for my friend's daughter (whose birthday is coming up soon)!

Welcome to the ville :hook

 

Have you started the skirt yet? Are you using a pattern at all for the upper part of the skirt?

Oh, well done Magic!  I didn't see this thread -- I tried to describe doing it that way (graduated stitches) in the other thread in 'help' yesterday, you are better at googling, I didn't think of searching for flowers.

Ahh, thank you so much!! That was exactly what I needed! And thanks for your help too, Granny Square. Now I finally know that they're actually called "loveys"!

Jamie, glad that will work for you---let us know how it turns out!

 

GrannySquare, I was surprised to find something so close to what i was thinking of, to illustrate the graduated st idea.  I think my search was for circle shape and keyword scallop.  I think your description of graduated sts is clear!

Look at old doily patterns.  A lot of them are in chart form, too.  There's a lot of that larger scallop around the edges.
