In a Twist
Motifs 51 and 52 have twisted picots. The technique is not quite as simple as I thought. Lesson one: twist the picot in the direction of the thread twist, not opposite to it. Unraveled thread looks scruffy. Lesson two: don't make the picots too long or they become a twisty mess. The ones at the top (my third attempt) look better than the lower ones because they're a little shorter.
