I just love the Picot crochet 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.

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.
