How To Crochet: Crown Picot EdgingBy Robin Beers – 15 Comments
This is a variation on a picot edge that looks like little crowns, thus the name, “crown picot”. It is basically 3 picots together to form a crown. The 2 outer ones are smaller and the middle one is larger. For more information on picot stitches, check out the picot stitches tutorial. You can use this stitch to edge a doily or a blanket.
Start with a row of single crochet. In this tutorial, I am using crochet thread size 3 with a D crochet hook.
Note: If you are left handed, just put your mouse over the photo for a left-handed view.
