Picot Joining As You Go

Happy last day of June, crafters! We still have a lot of time to enjoy long summer days and crochet our big projects. I am so excited to introduce our NEW Josefina and Jeffery elephant blanket pattern! Don’t you just love the colorful border? There are no exact duplicates of multicolored flower motifs. It’s such a great project for using up your yarn scraps!

This blanket is made from individually crocheted motifs using “joining as you go” technique where hexagon motifs are joined through the picot stitches of the last round. If you are new to crochet, you might like to check out our video tutorial for making a picot stitch –> HERE.

Picot JOIN is basically the same as picot stitch, except the beginning ch-3 is replaced with “ch 1 + sl st in the corresponding picot of previously made motif + ch 1“. Complete the stitch as you would normally finish a regular picot.

Here is a short “HOW-TO” video for you 🙂

Josefina and Jeffery crochet elephant blanket pattern has just been released & is included in our final promotion of Canada 150 celebration! Please check out our SPECIALS page for more information.

    Is it just me, or doesn’t Josephina need eyebrows? Just saying, I think she would look better with some.

      Hi Diane, thank you for your comment. The eyebrows are optional in the pattern, so I finished one of the elephants without eyebrows to show how it looks like. I love them both and sometimes it’s hard to choose without seeing and comparing options 🙂
