Roll or Bullion Crochet Stitch Instructions and PhotoPhoto Source: Handbook of Crochet 2, published early 1900s; resizedThis is the Bullion Stitch, sometimes called the Roll stitch, it is not an easy stitch for me to crochet.

I wanted to use it in this row of my tableclothbut I cannot seem to master it. I switched to a Solomon’s knot instead which is much easier to do. I will eventually master it though because I want to use it in this design.
As you can see I am learning. I bought this Encyclopedia last week and I hoping to learn to read patterns in the near future πŸ™‚

Have you tried any new stitches lately???



  1. No, no new stitches, just the basic ones. I’m still getting the hang of it. The bullion/roll stich seems rather difficult, but it’s only a matter of time until you master it. Persistence is the key to success πŸ™‚
