Picot

This is usually marked by a symbol with three ellipses (symbolizing a chain stitch) arranged in a inverted three-sided shape with a dot at the bottom (symbolizing a slip stitch), or an inverted three-sided shape within a circle.

The picot is a decorative element of the edge of a crochet piece – it’s often used to finish napkins, blankets or table mats. This small raised loop is exactly what it’s symbol depicts – three chain stitches joined by a slip stitch. We may use it between any types of stitches we like.

How-to:

We make three chain stitches, push the hook through the third chain stitch counting from the hook and close with a slip stitch. We now have a picot.

We may now continue on with whatever stitch we like.
