Playing with Picots

This is a book featuring motifs and bookmarks using various decorative picot techniques: long picots, graduated picots, broomstick picots, and Mrs. Mee's pearl picots, a technique introduced in an 1862 publication, and apparently forgotten since then.

There are 19 patterns in all: 9 bookmarks, 2 hearts (one of them large), 2 angels, 3 snowflakes, a tree, a cross, and an edging with corners.

Skill level is intermediate and advanced. Patterns are presented in both written form and diagram, and most of the patterns have more than one diagram to show the work in progress. Many of the patterns use split rings. The book includes instructions for using picot gauges, but whether you use a gauge is up to you.

This is a full size comb bound booklet (8 1/2 x 11 inches) with 44 pages plus covers. Here is a sample page:
