Beautiful Projects – Picot edging

May 10, 2016 0 Comments

Something about picot edgings make me think of warmer weather, and they’re not just for shawls. It might take a little bit of time but the effect is so lovely, and I had to have a look through the projects where knitters clearly love it too!

SarahJessicaW’s lovely Liesl was made for her daughter Indigo Rain. The picot edging is given as an option in the pattern and it works so nicely with the feather and fan lace, this project is a great example!

Such a cheery Scroll Lace Scarf! This version made by haloroundmyhead is gorgeous and shows how a picot edging can balance out a shaped shawl edging.

Say hello to our friend Mel, or notailkit on Ravelry! She made this Snow White a few years ago and everytime I see it I admire that lovely picot neckline…

And here’s a modified Orchid Thief, knit by daisyknits. The pattern doesn’t originally suggest a picot bind off but its such a great addition to the edging.

 

And finally, a stunning pair of Veyla mitts, knit by JenSchroll. Her project page shares that she added a picot to the top of the mitts ‘just for science.’ Seems like a good reason to me!
