I was able to whip up the silk piece in less than three evenings. Having disliked the look of the simple twist picot on the cotton and linen pieces, I decided to abandon it here. In the photo above I have lined up all of the twisted double picots to the left, the single loop picots in the center, and the twisted picots to the right. The entomology pins are not strong enough to create picots around, so I used the Dritz Bridal and Lace pins – the larger diameter makes for more pronounced picots.
