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.
