Motifs connect to each other across picots. The pictures below show this in process.
For 5 ch picot connection divide picot on 2 parts: 2 ch and 3 ch.Work 2 ch, release the hook from the loop, insert it in into picot of 5 ch another motif then insert hook again in the loop with 2 ch.
Pull the loop through picot then work 3 ch (the first of 3 ch will look like slip stitch), then finish picot as usual.
For 3 ch picot connection divide the picot on 1 ch and 2 ch.
When you should connect one motif to three another across 5 ch picot, work connection as usual but insert the hook through two picots at once like at the pictures below.
