The best hook to complete the bullion stitch effectively is a long, slender, in-line hook. The best yarn to use is a tightly plied one.To begin the stitch, loosely yarn over the number of times called for in the pattern. Working the yarn overs loosely is key to easily drawing the hook through all the loops. If you can’t get your loops loose enough, hold the handle of another smaller crochet hook alongside your hook and wrap the yarn over both. Slide the second crochet hook out after wrapping before completing the stitch.

As you draw the hook through, firmly hold the loops in place with the hand that is not holding the hook. If the loops do not slide easily, pick up each loop and pull it off the hook as you draw through.

If you get this right away, that’s terrific! Most people new to the stitch have to do a bit of ripping out before getting it right. The key to the bullion stitch is to practice it until your hands become familiar with the tension required when making the yarn overs and drawing the hook through.

  1. Hi, to find the link scroll to the second para at the top of the page where it starts
    with “here is just a sample …………..” put your cursor on the words printed in italics “Advanced crochet …………..” and click. A line will appear underneath and the next
    page will open automatically.
    Hope this works

  2. I can’t open the download either. First tried using the links in the email you sent me and thought it was a problem with the email. So I went to your web site and the links here also take me to a blank white page. Thought it might just be slow to load, so I waited a couple minutes and nothing appeared. Hope the problem is fixed soon. Thanks.

  5. Under picture 3 where it says “Download Advanced Crochet…” hover over the title “Advanced Crochet Stitches: A Free Guide to Crocheting Stitches…” a line should appear below it. Click there and it should open a new page with a red button that says “Get My Free eBook”. If you click the button it should open up another page with another red button. Clicking on the last button opens up the save as folder. Voila! You have made it!
