Crochet Challenge: Learn a new stitch

Week 5 (04-02-14) Challenge: Learn a new stitch this week, and show off a sample.
Answer: This was a great one because for some time I've been wanting to brush up on a couple of techniques, and learn the bullion stitch, but kept footling with other projects!

Sample - Chainless Foundation for Single Crochet

1.  The first technique/stitch was this one.  The tutorial I used to learn was:

Sample - Chainless Starting Double Crochet

2.  The second was this one.  The tutorials I used to learn this technique were:
Chainless Starting Double Crochet
Crochet Turning Chain Alternatives

Sample - Bullion Stitch
3.  Last but not least, a real surprise for me.  If anyone has been afraid of the bullion stitch, watch this video, using a straw as an aid!  These were my first bullions, and if I hadn't found this particular way of doing it, I might not have adopted this as a "can do" stitch!
The video tutorial I used to learn this stitch:
Crochet the Roll or Bullion Stitch + tips & tricks

What is your favorite stitch?  I'd like to try it, if I haven't already!

Until next time!

  2. Hi great challenge52...adding you as per the rules great stitch x

  3. The Bullion is a fun stitch and can add so much texture to anything you do! And you did fantastic! Also thank you for the links to the tutorials you used - always nice to have when my brain locks up ;)

  4. Chainless stitches are great to learn and to use.I like the bullion stitch too but I tend to think of it as the "bully" stitch because sometimes I feel like a bully trying to work that last yarn over through :)
