Picot Cast On

The Picot Cast On is a pretty, textured cast on that can be paired with a Picot Bind off to liven up the edges on your projects.

To make a Picot Cast on:

  • Cast on 5 stitches using the knitted cast on method
  • * knit two stitches
  • bind off two stitches using a regular bind off
  • You will have one stitch remaining on the right-hand needle. Place this stitch back onto the left-hand needle.
  • Cast on 4 stitches (you will now have 8 stitches on your left needle)
  • repeat from *

That's a Picot Cast on! Use it, enjoy it. Give a little flair to your knitting!
