I made this small doily in five minute after looking through Crochet Partners email. Someone is asking for an alternate edging. The Mile-a-Minute edging is one of my favorite edgings. I on several occasions look for a pattern to share on the internet with no luck. So I will share my version with you.
You need to have a row of sc's around the edge.
Ch 7, dc in the 4th chain from hook dc again is the same sc where the ch 7 began,
*sk 2 sc, dc in the next sc, ch3 dc in the top of dc just made, dc in the same sc as the previous dc.*
Repeat this process around the edge, making 3 scallops around the edge.
