Once you have mastered normal picots and downward picots, mirrored picots are a simple affair. Close mirrored picots will quickly become a favourite embellishment in your crochet.
Chain 8, remove your hook, insert hook into 8th chain from the hook and then into the 4th chain from the hook, pick up the dropped loop - no need to yarn over - and pull through both loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through to complete the pair of picots.
Continue as normal
It may take a little practice to get your mirrored picots to look well formed but once you do you'll love these little motifs.
