Bring the needle up through the back of the fabric just to the left of the pin and wrap around the pin top again.
Now you will begin weaving.
First row weave from the right to left: under / over / under.
Next row weave from left to right doing the opposite: over / under / over.
Continue this process until you reach the bottom.
Pull out the pin and you are finished!
Here are a few pics of what it looks with pin removed and the woven picot lifted away from the fabric to give you an idea of the dimension.
Pretty cool, huh?
I am using a #5 perle cotton thread. I hardly ever stitch with perle cotton but I read that the woven picot looks best when stitched with a thread that has a good twist to it (like a perle cotton).
I continued to stitch more woven picots around my blue circle to create my flower petals.
Then, I added french knots for the flower center with yellow DMC floss (all six strands).
Here are some more photos just to show the dimension of the stitch.

P.S. I learned the woven picot from watching Mary Corbet's video tutorial. Check it out!
