Off the Shuttle: Tatted Edging

I got some new Lizbeth threads recently. This tatted pillowcase edging was done in one of the new colors, Scottish Thistle. It's a pattern I've used several times. I like it because it's not very frilly. Most of the picots are just for joining, rather than decorative. The pattern is "Handkerchief Edging or Pillow Edging No. 11" on pgs. 33-34, in The Craft of Tatting by Bessie M. Attenborough (Bell & Hyman Ltd., 1972).
