The Picot Cast-On uses a combination of the knitted cast-on and binding off to create a picot edge.
You can use this cast-on to start top-down socks or any project where you'd like a scalloped edge. This cast-on is special in that it has a matching bind-off: the Picot Point Bind-Off #1.
Recommended Materials: A knitting needle smaller than the size your pattern calls for
1. Use a smaller needle than what the pattern calls for. This will prevent the picot edge from being to big and fluffy.
2. You can add distance between the picots by casting on and then binding off more stitches after you create each picot.
