Just so I’m clear–which I definitely wasn’t in the last post–the picot edging I did was a simple, no-fuss, picot bindoff. Yeah, I italicize a single word and think I’ve made the entire situation clear. But I didn’t do some fancy picot edging, I bound off into picots.
Still saying “dude, you are using synonyms here”? Yeah, I am. I can do better.
I did the following to bind off:
Cast off 2 stitches like normal. *Transfer the stitch on the right needle to the left. Using the cable caston method, cast on 2 stitches. Bind off 4 stitches like normal. Repeat from * around.
This creates little picots. There was no fancy row of picot-making, then some straight knitting, then folding and sewing the flap down. Lolly’s tutorial seemed to only mention these fold-down kinds. Until I read her tutorial, I didn’t even know that this fold-down picot thing existed! I just assumed that all picot-ed socks had a picot bindoff. Maybe it’s clear to the rest of you–or maybe I didn’t read the tutorial closely enough–but I went with what I perceived to be the lazy knitter’s way out! My problem with the technique is that the cable caston sucks, and the whole process was tedious and time-consuming. I couldn’t locate my small crochet hook, or it would have been a TON better.
So anyway, play with your own picot bindoff or edging and see what works for you!
