    very cool. I’ve done something kind of similar with a skirt i made. I bound it off doing a bobble stitch on every third stitch or something like that. It came out cool too.

      Sounds pretty cool! There are a lot of ways to bind off, especially when you are doing decorative edges.

    I’m confused. Do you cast on 2 stitches before every group where you want to make your picot stitches? Or just at the very beginning? I’m thinking so, but needed to clarify it.
    Thanks

      Yes cast on 2 stitches each time. That’s what creates the picot.

    Where can I find instructions for the type of cast on you did for the picot bind off. I’m looking for a way to cast on mid row and think this method would work great. Thanks Johnny.
