1. Stitch to the postition for the bullion
2. Wrap the yarn, from back to front, over the hook seven times
3. Take the hook, from front to back through the top of the next stitch of the previous row
4. Again, wrap the yarn, from back to front over the hook
5. Draw the hook backward to pull the loop through the top of the stitch
6. Again, wrap the yarn, from back to front over the hook
7. Draw the hook backward to pull the loop throguh all nine loops on the hook
8. Continue to the end of the row, interpersing double crochet stitches with the bullion stitches.
if you slowly turn the hook as you pull it through all the loops it is less likely to become "struck".
It is easier to creat a neat bullion stitch with a fine hook and thread rather than a thick hook and thread.
To help even out the wraps, hold teh stitch between your thumb and index finger and stroke the wraps with your thumb. It is easier to work bullions with a slippery thread or yarn, such a rayon.
