Crocheted Picot Edging is the second post in a little series of 4 posts about crocheted edgings. If you haven’t already, you might like to take a look at the first one, which shows how to crochet a shell or scalloped edging. And if you stick around for the last one, there will be a free printable of the four edgings plus 2 extra ones!
Picot edging is a very simple way of adding decoration to the edge of a piece of knitting or crochet. It is not as large or as fancy as some other edgings like the shells, which makes it perfect where you want a pretty edging that is more understated and less fancy.
How to Crochet Picot Edging
You will need an odd number of stitches to work your edging into.
The thing to remember with this edging is that apart from at the beginning, you don’t miss out any stitches.
With this variation, you do miss out a stitch when working the chains. This gives a triangular effect.
