I decided to make a scarf for my project and use the picot stitch on the edging on each end. The scarf is pretty wide because I wanted to have room to really show off the edging.


I think my favorite part is yarn that I used. I chose Chroma Twist for this project, a 2-ply color transitioning yarn that was so pretty to work with. Seeing the colors change and was so fun. I used the color Fathoms which has gorgeous blues and greens.


For the picot edging I wanted more than just a tiny picot along the edge so I combined that with a couple of rows of v-stitch to make a wider edging that would really stand out.
