    How do you crochet the picot? I looked for some instructions online but there are different versions and I don’t know which one you used.

    I don’t know if I did it right. I got confused between the end of round 2 and the beginning of round 3. Round 2 ends with a sl st but round 3 begins with a sl st as well (‘sl st into next dc’). So my question is – is that supposed to be the same sl st? Because the first time I did it I crocheted sl st in 2 consecutive dc and later I realized that I was missing a stitch.
