Bullion Crochet Flower: Success At Last

Posted by Avital Pinnick on February 6, 2012

Bullion Crochet Flower

This small accomplishment makes me absurdly happy. I tried crocheting the bullion (aka roll) stitch last night in this variegated cotton yarn and ended up with some impressive sculptural effects but nothing that could be identified as bullions. So I went to YouTube for tutorials and found a number of workarounds developed by clever crocheters. This video had the most elegant solution and it worked very well for me. The video is in Russian, but you don’t need the commentary. Just pick up a tapestry needle.
