The Picot Crochet Stitch

It has been a long two weeks. I am in that state between exhausted and invigorated, it is a strange feeling. I am excited about the social events going on in my life with Rotary, with my friends, with the 1868 soccer games, but at the same time I am anxious about finding more permanent and sustainable work. I know it will all be all right, and for now, I have so much time to crochet.

One of the projects that I am working on right now involves using a picot stitch and I realized that I hadn’t yet shared how to create a Picot Crochet Stitch. It is a simple stitch that can add some pizzaz to a project without increasing the volume or thickness of a project, and it increases the flexibility of the project.

You can create a Picot Crochet Stitch among any set of stitches. In my example I am creating Picot Crochet Stitches between Double Crochet Stitches. After completing the Double Crochet, chain 3.

After you complete the CH 3, insert your hook into the top of the DC stitch.

Slip stitch through the top of the DC stitch into the last chain of the CH 3.

Ta-da! That is how you make a Picot Crochet Stitch. I told you it was simple. Now go add some Picot Crochet Stitches into your project or give your project a fun edging. Happy crocheting!
