Crocheting a Picot Stitch

By:

The Picot Stitch is usually used as an edging, added onto a finished garment. Follow this tutorial and learn how to make three different picot stitches.


SMALL PICOT STITCH:

  1. Work along the edge of a finished item. (To make a length of picot edge to add to a ready-towear purchased item, begin with a chain, or a strip of single crochet or double crochet.)


     
  2. Single crochet in the first stitch.


     
  3. Chain 3, single crochet in the next stitch.


     
  4. Single crochet in the next 3 stitches. Chain 3, single crochet in the next stitch. (Picot formed).


     
  5. Repeat step 4 across the row.


MEDIUM PICOT STITCH:

  1. Repeat the instructions for small picot stitch, but chain 5, instead of chain 3.
     
  2. To make a slightly flared picot edge, as shown in the photo to the right, do the sequence of single crochet, chain 5, single crochet in the same stitch.
     
  3. This will flare out slightly, and could be useful for the bottoms of tank tops, or skirts, on the edges of sleeves, or hats.


BAUBLE ENDED PICOT STITCH:

  1. Follow the instructions for the small picot stitch, except chain 7 instead of chain 3.


     
  2. Slip stitch in the 6th stitch from the hook.


     
  3. Slip stitch in the last stitch of the chain. Single crochet in the next 3 stitches.


     
  4. Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 across the row.
