Add this wonderful Crochet Picot Stitch Tutorial to your repertoire for edging your crochet blanket patterns. It's a very delicate and beautiful stitch that's pretty simple to work up.

If your afghan ends up looking bland or not how you wanted it to turn out, adding an interesting edging can distract and add a new dimension to your final project. You'll need some extra yarn from your afghan unless you're making the picot stitch edging a different color than what you worked your afghan in, and whatever hook you used for the blanket.

How to Picot Crochet:

This tutorial focuses on crochet picot edging and uses three chains for the base. If you would like to see another video tutorial, click here for AllFreeCrochet's full picot stitch tutorial.

Use the picot stitch for granny squares, baby blankets, throws, and afghans or as edging on other crochet pieces as a beautiful decorative touch.

  1. First, slip stitch to where your picot belongs. Then crochet 3 chains on your hook.

  2. In order to get the perky tips, push hook back into the stitch you last chained out of.

  3. Crochet 1 standard slip stitch and keep working across.

  4. Crochet a slip stitch across to the next space.

  5. Continue the process across by crocheting a slip stitch, chaining 3, pushing your hook back into that same space, and slip stitching to create a new picot. Do this until you are finished.

Such a very pretty stitch to edge a blanket and love the idea that you can make hide some flaws on edges with this. Great video to teach anyone. If you want something pretty and easy to make a very pretty edging than this is it. I love these videos.
