How to crochet Picot Stitch Tutorial:


Picot’s are lovely round shape crochet stitches that comes in handy if you would like a simple but delicate edging on your pattern. The picot is generally used for an edging but I have also seen it in the middle of a filet and used frequently in thread patterns. This is a great simple way to finished your work and it has an elegant effect.

To complete this stitch you must know the chain (The Chain Stitch) and the single crochet (Single Crochet) stitches. It you do not know these stitches I would suggest that you review these stitches first and then come back to this tutorial. I have included the links for you.

A Picot can be made with any number of chains, I am working the tutorial by crocheting a chain 3.

Picot Stitch Tutorial:

Note: Because this stitch is usually an worked as an edge, I will be crocheting the first row as 10 single crochet, with one single crochet in the second row before I work the first Picot.


Step 1: chain three. (pictured above)


Step 2: Slip stitch in the first chain. (pictured above)

Note: if you are not sure where the third chain is just count back three chains back from the hook.

Congratulations, you have just crocheted your first small Picot stitch.

If you have not crocheted this edging before you should give it a try. I believe you will be happy with the end results. If there is a tutorial you would like to see, please let me know. You never know what you might see on Crochet With Passion.

Until next week keep those hooks flying.



About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
