Triple Picot Border – Pattern Description
Here’s another super easy and decorative border pattern that you can learn in no time: Triple Picot Border.
The Triple Picot Border is crocheted with clusters of picot stitches separated by slip stitches.
It doesn’t have a special pattern for the corners making it a beginner-friendly pattern that can be adjusted to any project.
It works great on any edge, from square and rectangle projects such as blankets and afghans to triangle edges such as shawls or straight edges such as scarves. You can even crochet it on a round edge such as a hat or a sleeve.
Before starting on any edge, I recommend you make a base row of single crochet stitches around your project.
If you are making this border for a blanket, check out my base row tutorial for blankets with double crochet rows or base row tutorial for blankets with treble rows to give you an idea of how a base row is made based on the different types of stitches your blanket rows are made with.

Pattern written in US terms using Craft Yarn Council abbreviations.
No special stitches were used in this pattern.
- This border requires you to have multiples of 5sts+1st, but if you don’t, I am showing you in the video tutorial how to adjust the pattern.
- The section between ** is the section that needs to be repeated.
- This border is crocheted in the round without turning, each round is closed with an sl st.
- TIP: Make sure you make a triple picot in each corner stitch, if the stitches don’t align, then add one or take one sl st so the picots fall on the corners.
Round 1 (Single Crochet Round): Start in the corner and join with a slip stitch.
*Crochet 3sc in the corner stitch, sc in each stitch along the edge until you reach the next corner stitch*, repeat on each side. When you reach the first sc you made in this round, sl st.
Sl st in the next stitch to move the yarn in the corner stitch.
Round 2: *ch5, sl st in the same stitch, ch5, sl st in the same stitch, ch5, sl st in the same stitch, sl st in the next 5sts*, repeat from * until you have crocheted all around your project, making sure you have one triple picot in each corner.
Once you reach the first triple picot, sl st in the base stitch to close the round.
