Product Details

These nifty little "mock bullion" stitches in rainbow hues definitely remind me of those colorful wooden math helpers you find in children's school rooms. I'm a fan of the look of a bullion stitch, I just find there is no rhythm and joy in working them. But this nifty little "mock bullion" stitch is super easy (plus, I include a bunch of pictures of how to do it) in the thoroughly tested and detailed written pattern.

The pattern includes:

complete materials section including yarn colors/quantities used in the sample

notes, abbreviations, and special stitches sections

detailed written pattern (standard US terms)

bonus picture section (no need to print to complete the blanket as written) for a little extra help, if needed

multiples number to adjust dimensions of your blanket

The sample was made with Willow Yarns Wash. A suggested substitute yarn is shown below.
