I’m back with another round-up of patterns featuring stitches I’ve taught here on the blog. Today’s featured stitch is the picot!
Did you miss the picot tutorial? No worries, catch up on it here.
Just to recap, picots are a decorative stitch, usually found in edging, made at the same time as your last row / round of pattern stitches. The last row / round of pattern stitches provide a “base” stitch, we’ll call it, that you will build your picot on top of using a series of 3 chain stitches, then close your chains with a slip stitch through the top of your base stitch.
Free Patterns Using Picots
In my tutorial, I referenced the pattern I was doing a refresh of, as well as a WIP that I was working on at that time using a variation on the picot that worked it into the body of the shawl. Those are first up, then a few others for funsies!
In my picot tutorial post, I mentioned that I had been working on refreshing the Autumn Walks Triangle Scarf pattern. I used picots as edging on this gorgeous shawl and I think it really set it off nicely!

I also mentioned in my picot tutorial post that I had a WIP that also made use of picots but in the body of the pattern as opposed to the edging. The beautiful lacework of this shawl from Wilma Westenberg makes the little picots look like flowers, so pretty and dainty!
This is another pattern that features the picot as part of the body, not just as an edging. Everyone needs a good wrap, and the drape on this is beautiful!

These sweet favor bags will have wedding guests saying I Do! Or use them to gift a pair of earrings to a friend or whatever else you can come up with. This pattern uses a ch-4 picot, but the methodology is the same, just one extra chain stitch to it.

Another pattern from Han Jan Crochet, get into the winter spirit, or just try to get ahead of the busy season.

Made up of mostly V stitches, this shawl is super beginner-friendly. The perfect weight as well for the transition of season from summer to the cooler fall temps.
