A crochet picot stitch is a small loop created by chaining a few stitches, usually 3-5.
It is often used as a decorative element along edges or to create a space between other stitches.
Picots add charming detail to crochet projects, like edges of lace, or as a finishing touch on items like shawls, blankets, bookmarks, or doilies.
