Picot stitches look so different when they're crocheted left-handed! Let me rephrase that. The process looks so different. The stitches themselves look the same regardless of whether you crochet right-handed or left-handed. But seeing how they're made from another angle is blowing my mind a little bit.
I used to think that picot stitches could look a little fussy, but I like how they look when spaced out across a flat edge. I typically can't stand when people use the word "pop", as in a pop of color or something similar. And yet.....I have to admit that picot stitches just pop out and add a little something to an already nice border.
I just keep thinking about how nice a border in a contrasting color would look around projects. Like a light blanket with a dark blue edging. Or some pink at the cuff of a purple sock (I think my daughter would let me get away with this!). Or some green around this behemoth 'baby' blanket.
|Yes, I know this is the same picture from yesterday's post. But it looks the same. It's just a few inches longer today.|
Adding a little bit of fancy picot stitching? I'm cringing as I type this, but it would make that border pop just a bit more. I'm strongly considering it. I really am.
