In stitch(es) indicated make dcfp holding back last 2 loops on hook, repeat dcfp in next loop pulling through 2 loops and then thru all loops on hook to form cluster.
PICOT (P) (Pronounced ‘Pee-co’)
Picots are created by chaining the number of stitches called for in the pattern and then working a slip stitch in the indicated stitch or space. The picot stitch is great to use for edging a crochet project!
The first picot stitch creates a wider looking stitch that is firmly attached to the crochet project. To begin: ch 3, insert hook back into the center of the base st, yo, pull through all lps on hook.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
