How to Crochet a Picot
Plus Links to Free Patterns That Use Picots Within the Design

How To: A picot is made by crocheting a chain 3, chain 4, or chain 5, followed by a slip stitch in the same stitch just made. There can be a varying number of stitches used in between each picot.

I've placed a red circle around one of the picots in the photo at left. The photo is a closeup look at part of a Venetian Lace design (click on first link below, for the free Venetian Crochet pattern).
