Featured Stitch: Bullion/Roll Stitch

Bullion/Roll Stitch: (Abbreviation: None)
The Bullion Stitch, or Roll Stitch, is a complicated decorative stitch that creates a bunched stitch by wrapping yarn around the widest part of your hook (or around your hook and an aid) 7 to 10 times.

Photo: One partial row of Bullion Stitch created using a J hook and a size 8 (5mm) knitting needle as an aid. (Foundation is one row of double crochet.)

Note: In retrospect, I probably should have used a smaller aid, but it’s what I had nearby. This is my first time doing the Bullion Stitch.

Wrap yarn around widest part of your crochet hook 7-10 times (4-6 for beginners). Slide roll toward head of hook. Insert hook in stitch, yarn over, pull through stitch, yarn over, and with the head of your hook facing downward pull through all loops on hook. (1 loop left on your hook) Yarn over, pull through loop to lock in.

It’s a complicated stitch, so it may be helpful to watch Martha Hubert’s video tutorial. Patrice Walker also has a blog post stating 6 tips that are extremely¬† helpful when performing this stitch. Robin Beers on Crochet Spot has a post showing how to use a knitting needle as an aid for the bullion crochet stitch.
