How to Crochet a Picot Stitch

Picots (no abbreviation) are pretty little round-shaped crochet stitches that add a decorative touch to an edging. You can also use picots to fill an empty space in a mesh design. You see them quite often in thread crochet, but you can also make them with yarn.

1

Chain (ch) 3.

Create three chain stitches from the point in your row where you want to add the picot stitch.

2

Insert your hook in the third chain from the hook.

This chain stitch is the first you created in the preceding step.

3

Yarn over (yo) and draw the yarn through the stitch and through the loop on the hook.

You've completed one picot stitch.

4

Check out the symbol that represents a picot stitch.

Many people who crochet prefer to read stitch diagrams instead of written instructions. This symbol for picot stitch would appear in a stitch diagram.
