Emily Explains: Picot Cast On

Screen Shot 2014-01-27 at 4.45.23 PM

I’m always looking for new ways to embellish my knits and the picot cast on was at the top of my list. I finally had the chance this week to learn how it’s done. The picot cast on is a beautiful technique that can be used to create a scalloped edging along almost any piece. It’s actually very really easy to learn, so it’s a great way for beginners to experiment with their knitting.

Want to try it yourself? Grab some yarn and needles and follow along.

Maybe you can give it a try on your next project!

Happy Knitting,
