SPECIAL STITCHES

Picot (picot)

A picot stitch is made using chain stitches and a slip stitch. It can be used as an extension to single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, or treble stitches.

A picot is normally 3 chain stitches, but if you require more definition, make it with 4 chain stitches.

  1. Create three chain stitches at the point where you want to add a picot.
  2. Then insert your hook into the third chain from the hook.
  3. Yarn over hook (YO) pull the yarn back through both the stitch and the loop on the hook.
  4. This completes one Picot stitch.

Abbreviated version

Picot — ch3, insert hk into 3rd ch from hk, YO pull the yarn back through both the stitch and the loop on the hk.
