Woven Picot Pattern PDF just added at bottom of this post!


I finally found this old bookmark when reminded by Muskaan's Tips weaving picots  and only one page of directions out of two.
I is enough to make whole pattern if you understand how to weave a little :)

This is from 2007 and the thread size is 20, and I did not use a gauge.
I tried to locate the lady that designed this woven picot pattern Marrie Stoffer, and old webbsight with out any luck.
Most all of the pattern is here this picture can be enlarged too.
I have started a new one, just to see if I could remember using the directions, before I found the old bookmark

The directions gets you to the next side and I attached the picots in reverse order.  It was fun but made them too long.
I used size 40 thread and this time I made my own picot gauge, but it was too long.
My guess for size twenty would be one centimeter but best to test tat. 

The other tip that was given and on last page was to use a crochet hook to weave and this makes work go faster too.
It also seems a bit easier if the weaving part is tatted with variegated thread.
Maybe someone can remember this free pattern or has part two can be done with this one page and I did conect picots and omit some from origanal :)
sorry I took so long to find this :(
have a great day
I can help anyone that wants to give it a try.

  6. Thank you so very much, Carollyn !!! Will definitely give this a go. This is the bookmark on Georgia's site (on the post about picots), but without any pattern.
    Thanks again :-) And beautifully tatted/woven - the variegation gives an unusual effect - like tiger's fur

  14. I attempted something like this several years ago, but found it difficult to get the picot lengths right. Yours looks much better than mine did!

    1. The trick is making a guage and it would be nice if the mention the length of the picot.

  15. Wow, it's really original that work! I like so much with the variegate thread.
    I understand that it's too long to do!

  19. Oh that is why I suggested variegated thread it is easier to see and using a crochet hook to weave it. Maybe one day you will come back to it.

  20. Rest of pattern is......... For the second row:

    R 4 –4 –4 –4.; R 4 – 4 – 4- 4. Chains with joins of the long picots, start with the first picot of the second group( of long picots) After that also connect the second and third picot of the second group.

    For the joining of the first group of picots, Weave these through the already joined picots, begin with the first picot of the first group, and then the second and third picot. See picture.

    The chain looks as follows: Ch 4+ 1+ 1+ 4+ 1+ 1+ 4. Repeat Rings as in first row. Repeat chains as just mentioned. End with an Upper Chain.

  21. A familiar pattern, I tatted it years ago in thread size 80. And I used a crochet hook too to weave. I knew the designer too. I like it in your colours, and thread size too!
