Bullion or Roll Stitch Crochet Tutorial
The roll stitch, also known as the bullion stitch, is a wonderful technique that give crochet projects a cool look and feel. This stitch just consists of wrapping yarn around a crochet hook and pulling through all loops when a desired number of wraps is reached.
The Yarn & Hook
I used Lion Brand Skein Tone Yarn for my example, but Caron Simply Soft would work great too! Be sure to use the crochet hook size as stated on the yarn package. You may also want to have a pair of scissors to cut the yarn if needed. I linked up the yarn I used and my favorite hooks as well below if you’d like to take a look.
Crochet Stitches in a Bullion Stitch
To make a bullion stitch in crochet you will need to know a few basic stitches. These crochet stitches are easy to learn and fun to make.
While the stitches are easy, the technique can be tedious due to pulling back through the coil of loops, so I marked this tutorial intermediate.
Ready to Get Started?
If you’re ready to start crocheting, then the full tutorial is below! As a reminder, I will be explaining this stitch by wrapping the yarn around 5 times, but you can do more or less wraps in your project if you wish.
I hope you enjoy the bullion crochet stitch tutorial!
