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 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!

Bullion’s in Bloom

Here is my second 12′ square.  This one did not come near as easily as the first one did! The biggest problem was trying to figure out which stitches I wanted to use.  After several attempts at making a flower that was not turning out anywhere close to what I was picturing in my head; I decided it was time to go in a completely new direction.

Now something you may not know about me is I like to push myself; so I figured why not learn a new stitch!? So after searching around a bit I came across the Bullion Stitch.  This stitch is a beautiful, but apparently it is a bit of a challenge to master; and I now was down to 3 days to master this stitch and design a square using it.  Can we say ‘procrastinate much’?  But, that’s okay; I love the rush as a deadline quickly approaches.

Don’t forget to Favorite this design and add it to your Library in Raverly!

Special Notes:
You may need to push the CH3 from Round 2&3 to the back of your work.

With each color change you will finish off and Invisible Join. You can see in the photos below why I have chosen to do this instead of carrying the yarn up each row. The photo on the bottom has a much nicer look than the photo on the top where you can see the different joining’s.
