Picots can look so pretty as an edging, especially when working with finer yarns, either on blankets, shawls or doilies.
Some patterns will require you to work a stitch through a picot…..
And then rather than pretty picots, they become perfectly, pesky picots!!
This simple technique will change the way you think about making picots.
The traditional way to make a picot is to chain 3 and join with a slip stitch in the first chain.
Now this is great when you are working on an edge, but when you need to be able to get your hook through the centre of that tiny loop you just made it can be really tricky.
The other problem I have found is that the picot tends to push the next stitch over slightly, leaving a gap in your stitches.
