Learn how to crochet the bullion stitch with a latch hook and make a pretty flower to embellish your projects in the process.
If you’re looking for a crochet flower that’s unlike anything you’ve tried before, you’re in the right place. Bullion stitches are so unique and they make a beautiful flower.
With this project you’ll learn how to crochet bullion stitches the easy way; with a latch hook. If you don’t have a latch hook or can’t buy one, you can use a crochet hook instead. Just wrap the loops around the hook the same as with the latch hook. Just know it’s a tad difficult to finish the stitch.
