Ok....I tat.  It's great.  I have run across a problemo...
I have a pattern that STARTS with a picot....no DS in front of it.
Am I missing something, or how does one accomplish that?

Thanks

I have done picots with crochet, but I don't tat.  I just took a look at StitchGuide.com to see if there was any info there, but while they do have a section on tatting, it looks like it would have to have a double stitch (unless I'm misunderstanding it -- as I said, I haven't learned to tat).

I love tatting...it is such a lost art!

A picot is begun by half a double. So start as you normally would start a double, but instead of completing it hold the thread for the picot. It will hold itself as an anchor without a DS. I hope this helps.

Maybe a visual will be better?

If it is the first stitch in a ring, then skip the picot part until the end. After closing the ring, tie  your thread ends together to form a mock picot, which will be in the correct position to be the first stitch. This also lets you 'climb out' to the next round without cutting and tying.
