Really easy this one
Not a very good picture - sorry - but here goes with the instructions.
With a foundation row of straight edged stitches, make one chain and then work one sngle crochet (UK double crochet) into the first stitch.
make 6 chain then single crochet into the same stitch.
* make a single crochet into the next stitch, make 6 chain. Single crochet into the same stich**
Repeat from * to **
This one is neat!
Ok so it's a little frustrating having to keep changing colour as you work, but well worth the effort for the results.
After making a straight edged foundation row in colour A (yellow) make one chain and then turn.
Make 1 single crochet (UK double crochet) into the first stitch, then make 4 chain. Remove hook from loop.
With colour B join into second stitch by pulling a loop of B through the stitch and then make 5 chain. Remove hook from loop.
Insert hook back into A loop. Bring chain A in front of chain B. Make one single crochet into next stitch. Make 4 chain. Remove hook from loop.
Insert hook into B loop. Bring chain B in front of chain A and make one single crochet into next stitch. Make 4 chain.
Continue in this manner all along your edge.
Finish by making one single crochet with A then one single crochet with B and then fasten off.

* Make 4 double crochet (UK treble) together into the next stitch. (Just like you would if you are decreasing stitches, but on this occasion work them all into the same stitch)
Work 1 half double crochet (UK half treble) into each of next 2 stitches **
Repeat from * to ** to end, finishing with 1 half double crochet into last stitch
