This is a great stitch for finishing but can also be used within a pattern. Not sure how to work the picot stitch? Keep reading for the picot stitch crochet tutorial!

3) Patterns may vary, but to complete the picot stitch, insert your hook into the base of the stitch, top of the stitch, or side of the stitch.

4) Slip stitch in the space where the pattern mentions to insert your hook. I really enjoy working in the side of the base stitch. (Shown in the photo above and to the left. Photo above to the right shows inserting a hook into the base of the base stitch.

5) Continue working this stitch across the edge for edging or follow pattern instructions. Picots can be used between stitches. Not only is it a great edging stitch, but this is a beautiful way to make lace pattern really stand out!
