New edging that I love!

Ok, so I've been making a lot more of my "boy/girl potholders" because of a craft fair coming up and instead of the shell edging on the "girl" ones, I did a picot edging that looks wonderful! (picture to come...)

The picot I used is ch3, sl st in top of prev sc

So, attach anywhere with a sl st, ch 1, sc in same st,* picot, sc in next 2sc, repeat around, evenly spacing the sc, picot in the area between the legs and sl st together in the first sc.
Repeat for second leg!

And I have been creating a few other patterns, just haven't had time to post because of school.
Sorry! But maybe use this idea, 'cause it does make a precious edging.

God bless!
