Triple Picot Tutorial:

IMG_1125

The triple picot stitch is great when used for an edging when you would like to add a touch of whimsy to any project. I was excited about this stitch actually because I crocheted it for the first time this year. One of the amazing things about crocheting that always keeps me coming back is the endless amount of stitches that there are to learn. All using the basic stitches in different combinations.

This stitch is no exception, all you will need to master before working this stitch is the single crochet, chain stitch and slip stitch. Out of those three stitches you will create a beautiful edging.

Enough talk, let get some yarn and a hook and learn the triple picot.

Note:  I am using a foundation row of five single crochets.

Congratulations!!!  You have just completed your first triple crochet picot.

Now you can testify as to how easy this stitch is to work and how pleasing it is to the eye.
Would love to hear what you think of the Triple Picot stitch. On a different note, if you have had the pleasure of already using this stitch would love to hear what you think of it.

Until next time, 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.
