When it comes to Bullion Stitches the issue many have is that they become very bulky. However a nice and simple way to achieve longer bullion stitches is to use a hair pin – just pull the legs a little apart and make sure your hook can move through.
This tutorial is based on the hair pin trick.
Put your hair pin inside the loop and twirl the yarn around it. Keep the yarn secure with your index finger.
Remove your hook from the long loop and push it through the arch of the hair pin from the back towards you – place the long loop on the hook again and pull back through as shown on the picture.
Gently pull your hair pin with the longer loop through all the loops – You can help this along by using your fingers to move the loops off the hair pin.
