Picots (for Hardanger)


These very traditional additions are worked at the same time as the weaving is being accomplished. Weave to the center of the bar and insert the needle part way into the bar (6a). Bring the thread from the bar, under the back of the needle and around the front (6b). Pull the needle through, and work the picot until it lies firmly on the outside of the bar. Wrap that side one time, bringing the needle around the outside of the bar and into the center (6c). Repeat for the other side and complete the weaving of the bar (6d).
