How to Crochet the Bullion Stitch

Updated: Jan 16, 2022

Hi everyone! Today's video tutorial is a short one. Just a quick demonstration of the Crochet Bullion Stitch. When I first tried it, I was a bit frustrated as my yarn kept slipping from my hook before getting my hook through all of the loops!

After trying several times and making a beanie using this stitch, I got the hang of it and I'd love to share tips that worked for me!

So the way you work a Bullion Stitch is by wrapping your yarn (or yarn overs) around your hook 8+ times, depending on the pattern. For this demonstration, I wrapped the yarn 7 times.

"Yarn over 7x, insert hook in next st, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all 8 loops on your hook."

When you are wrapping your yarn on your hook, make sure it is loose. This helps you pull through better with some space.

The one thing I found very helpful was to turn my hook so it's facing down.

When you yarn over the last time (before pulling through all 8 loops), use your other hand/fingers to tug the working yarn and make sure it's tight around the hook.

Give it a try and let me know how you like it!

I've struggled with the yarn slipping from the hook in the past, so I appreciate your advice about keeping the yarn loose when wrapping it around the hook. I'll definitely try turning my hook down and using my fingers to tighten the working yarn on the last yarn over — those seem like practical solutions. basketball stars
