Mock Bullion Flames

Don’t be afraid; there is not a single Bullion stitch in this square!  Although you don’t have to tell anyone that, haha.  This square is called ‘Mock Bullion Flames’ because there is a square called ‘Bullion Flames’ that I simply have not finished (I may have started it 2 winters ago) and gotten published yet.  It has a very similar look to this square, except there are no Mock stitches in it.

This site contains affiliate links and I may be compensated.

This square works up really quickly, has so much texture to it and would be perfect to help use up one of those randomly small balls of yarn.  There are plenty of photos and tutorial links included incase you should have any issues. And if working Back Post stitches is something you just really hate to do…..just do them anyway, this square is totally worth it!

Notes:
– When instructed to work into the top of the Mock Bullion st, be sure you are crocheting in the DC that the loops are worked around.
– If you prefer you can join the new color with a Standing SC instead of the Joining, CH1, SC combination that is written in the pattern
– In R9 and R15 you will skip the first HDC after the corner,
– On R14 there will be 20 SC worked on every side, you can use stitch marker to determine where you corners are, work the stitches accordingly to where you joined your R13
– On R15 locate where the directions are for working in the ‘CH2 sp’ and then work backward to see what your stitch order will be
