Picots made of bullion knots over buttonhole stitch is this week’s stitch on TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB. The method of working this stitch is given on her blog. it needs some practice to familiarize with this stitch. Next week’s stitch is another way of working this same stitch. I have worked these picots over some variations of buttonhole stitches.
1.Picots worked over three variations of buttonhole stitches.
2. The buttonhole stitches are worked at two heights, and picots are worked over the higher buttonholes stitches in the first row. Three stitches are worked on higher level and picots are worked over the lower buttonhole stitches in the second row. Picots are worked over closed buttonhole stitches in the third row.
3. Two rows are buttonhole stitches are worked one over the other and picots are worked on the top row in the first sample. Picots are worked on bullion buttonhole stitch in the second sample. Picots are worked on a crossed butthole variation in the third sample.
