I just love the Picot stitch! I think its super pretty in the right places, and adds a sweet little detail to the edging without taking over the piece.
I use the picot as a unique, but subtle border in a few of my patterns, including the Blissful Boho Shrug and Angles Tunic. So, I thought I would write a quick Picot Stitch Tutorial for those who aren’t familiar with this charming little stitch.
The Picot is a simple and easy stitch, consisting of single crochets, chains and slip stitches. It is very easy to learn and once you get the hang of it, you’ll be hooking picots like nobody’s business!
First, you work the specified number of sc, then ch3…
Sl st into the side of the last sc you just made…
Then carry on with your next set of sc. Do not skip any stitches. The sl st goes into the sc that you just formed, not the row beneath. Also, be sure you don’t chain too tightly, or you’ll have tiny picots.
Now you know how to do a picot! Easy, right?? Now go add this enchanting stitch to all your garments!
I hope you found this Picot Stitch Tutorial helpful. If you would like to know when I post more free crochet patterns and tutorials, head on over to my Instagram and Facebook pages and give me a like and a follow.
