#### Overlapping Picot Edging

Overlapping Picots Edging by Dagmar Pezzuto ©2016
Dagmar Pezzuto shares her original pattern using an overlapping picots method.

ABBREVIATIONS
DS = double stitch
R = ring
CH = chain
+ = join
- = picot
-- = long picot
clr = close ring
MR = mock ring
CTM = continuous thread method
SH1 or SH2 = shuttle one or shuttle two
(- 1) x7 = (picot 1ds) repeated 7 times (numbers vary)
2 colors of thread and 2 shuttles
Dagmar's note: This edge was inspired by the picot Ikuta method.

ROUND 1
R1 (SH2) = 3DS - 3DS --- 3DS - 3DS. Clr
CH1 (SH1) = 1 (- 1) x7
R2 (SH2) = 3DS - 3DS+ (R1) 3DS - 3DS. Clr
Ch2 (SH1) = 1 (- 1) x7
R3 (SH2) = 3DS - 3DS + (R1) 3DS - 3DS. Clr
Ch3 (SH1) = 8DS
R4 (SH1/SH2) = tat two color overlapping picots (Ikuta style) with 3 DS between
Ch4 (SH1) = 8DS
R5 (SH2) = 3DS - 3DS + (R1) 3DS - 3DS. Clr
Ch5 (SH1) = 1 (- 1) x7
R6 (SH2) = 3DS - 3DS + (R1) 3DS - 3DS. Clr
Ch6 (SH1) = 1 (- 1) x7
MR (SH1) = 15DS - 1DS - 1DS - 1DS - 15DS + R1
Ch7 (SH1) = 21DS
SCMR7 (SH2) = 4DS + (Ch6) 4DS - 4DS - 4DS. Clr
Ch8 (SH1) = 21DS

Note: Corners can be tricky to navigate but Dagmar has the perfect solution!

CLOVER CORNER

CHa(SH1) = 21DS - 5DS
Ra (SH2) = 4DS - 4DS + (CH1) 4DS - 4DS. Clr
Rb (SH2) = 4DS + (Ra) 8DS - 1DS - 1DS - 8DS - 4DS. Clr
Rc (SH2) = 4DS + (Rb) 4DS - 4DS - 4DS. Clr
CHb (SH1) = 5DS (Cha) 21DS

To practice this style of picot beforehand please try the basic method for the overlapping picot:

Wrap SH1 for a ring. This is the core thread.

Tat normally 3 ds using SH1 and the core thread.

Tat normally 2 ds using SH1 and SH2.

After the last ds bring the SH2 to the left and let it dangle to the left until needed next.

Tat normally 3 ds using SH1 and the core thread.

Tat normally 3 ds using SH1 and Sh2.

Start and end with SH1
