How To: Crochet The Picot Single Crochet - Easy Tutorial


From day one of crocheting I immediately fell in love with all the textures you can create with some yarn and the twirl of a hook...
Any stitch that has bobbles worked into it becomes an obsession of mine as soon as I learn it, as they are just so darn cute!

The other day I unpackaged some of the yarn the delightful people over at Sirdar sent me, and at the top of the parcel was this gorgeous cotton yarn in this peaceful blue shade. Just like any other crocheter would do, I excitedly started fiddling around with it and in the process learned the Picot Single Crochet stitch!

The Picot Single Crochet creates the cutest and tiniest little bobbles, which has me head-over-heels with this stitch as I'm sure it would create the sweetest baby blankets and most whimsical scarves!

  9. The granule sew is a pattern of alternating picot single crochets (abbreviated %) and normal unmarried crochets (sc). Historically writing, the granule stitch is worked with the p.C sts staggered in each row, so that you’d start with a multiple of four, plus 1, plus 1 for the beginning chain (or if starting with fsc, just a more than one of four plus 1).
