Yesterday I showed you a tutorial on bullion stitch/knots and today I am following up on that with a quick tutorial on Bullion roses. Bullion roses are also known as Porto Rico Rose stitch.
To form Bullion knots into roses first start by forming a triangle. Next create a Bullion knot at one of the triangle corners and add extra twists to make it curl. Continue working around the shape adding knots till a rose is formed. You could work the roses in two or three colours to create a really nice shaded effect. They would look nice on an item of clothing like a wooly cardigan or worked as a border with a stem and Fishbone Stitch leaves.
