Bullion Crochet Flower Tutorial

I love this stitch, it's so pretty and the flower is different than most crochet flowers. They are very pretty alone or stacked on top of one another.
You can click pics to enlarge.
Use a size 7 steel crochet hook, and size 1o cotton crochet thread. To start, chain 6.
Join with a slip stitch to beginning chain to make a loop.Chain 3.
Yarn over 7 times (wrap the base of hook).
Insert hook in loop, yarn over, draw through all loops on hook, repeat this stitch 11 more times. I find that it is easier to draw through all the loops by leaving pressure on the wrap with my index finger.
Join with slip stitch to beginning stitch. Chain 3.
Bullion stitch in same stitch as chain, *two bullions in next stitch,
1 bullion in next stitch. Repeat from *.
Join with slip stitch, and finish off.

Just lovely! Thread crochet is my favorite to work with and my fingers are just itching to try this out!

This is so much fun once you get a hold of doing it, if you keep trying you eventually get it for sure. I love doing this cute flower for sure! Thank you for posting this for us all to use

This is wonderful. However, when you are doing the second row of bullions you don't say how many times we should repeat the instructions. I'm going to love doing these, I think.

Regards

I love this. But please email me some help. How do you get the different sizes? I like the layered idea but always come up with the same size flower. pbaca6@cox.net

beautiful flower you have designed.

if i were to use them in a necklace to sell, and give your name/website credit in the ad, would you allow that?

thanks, patti

I have crocheted for over 40 years but haven;t done much lately. I just lost my husband to cancer a couple of months ago and have picked back up my hooks to restore some sanity. After trying to wrap the hread around 7 imes and to keep it there has given me the biggest laugh I've had in 2 mos. I haven't done it yet, but I'll keep trying. At least I'm laughing instead of trying. Mnay thanks

I have crocheted for 45 years, but the last 2 years not so much. My husband just died of cancer two months ago. I have picked back up my hooks to give me some peace of mind. I saw your beautiful flower and I have to tell you, it was what I needed. I haven't laughed this much in years! I can't get it wrapped 7 timees and keep them there. Thank yo so much for a flower and a laugh. I will keep trying.

I can't even tell you how much you're my hero right now. I've been looking for a flower that I could manipulate to for a project for about a year now. Thank you thank you thank you!
