Loom Knitting Pretty Picot Flowers - Picot Star & Picot Petals

Picot Star & Picot Petals

Loom Knitting a flower never looked so sweet.

Pretty Picots edge this 6 pointed star made on a 12 peg Knifty Knitter Flower loom. This is a true knit flower but it also looks like a 6 pointed or sided star.  We call it the Picot Star.  The main flower is very easy with a picot bind off. Watch for a bonus vlog on a true cable cast on as well by Charity Windham.

The Picot Star looks great by itself as an embellishment to a hat scarf, handbag, clip or headband. Well hey use it for a variety of projects! But for a multilayered effect pair it with the Picot Petals Pattern. This flower is larger and is make on the 24 peg Knifty Knitter. (Looms can be swapped out of course!)

Below are the Written Patterns and the video tutorials.  Have fun and Happy looming!

The Picot Star can be made to place on top of GoodKnitKisses larger flower, the Picot Petals pattern. Watch video at
