Hey, hey in my first crochet video ever you will learn how to modify the crocheted Picot Stitch so your picots stand up straight instead of leaning pathetically to one side. This very simple modification will make your picot stitches neat and straight.
I really like the look of picot stitches surrounded by chains but I had always been frustrated by their untidy look as they lean slightly to the left. Finally I found the very simple solution of eliminating one chain to the right of the picot to create a beautiful even stitch.
This video shows the exact method I use. I hope this video eliminates your crochet frustration and you live happily ever after with your straight picot stitches
