You have been very helpful so I am writing again with a question on the picot stitch of this pattern. I find when I connect a picot to a picot of the shell, you recommend connecting in the 6th chain. But I find whether I connect under both “vs” of the chain or the bump in the back of the chain, the stitch appears stretched and pulled by the next row. Is there a different way to connect the picot to avoid that uneven, pulled, appearance? Thanks for your help.
Hi Beverly, When you are going to crochet picot st in picot of the shell, first you have to sl st to the picot of the shell st (in the pattern description it has written like this >>ch 3, sl st to next picot of shell). And crochet ch 6, sl st to the sixth ch from hook (not below picot st’s chains of the shell). Now you have another picot just above the picot of the shell. That’s the way how it going. I think you can understand it. If you have more quest, don’t hesitate to ask. I’m here to help you. 🙂
As an addendum to my comments on the picot stitch above, I have one more question. The picot attached to the picot in the picot in the shell has a tendency to twist and turn. How does one prevent this?
I have replied to your previous question. Please look at it and tell me if there are more questions about the pattern. If you look carefully, There are instructions for how to crochet picot stitch and shell with picot st in the pattern, too, see special stitches section.
Good afternoon. Please can you tell me if this pattern uses UK or American terms?
I use American crochet terms. ?
