“It’s like wearing a piece of artwork around your hips. This lacy crocheted belt is a great accessory for a simple tunic, long t-shirt, or denim skirt. A special stitch, called the bullion stitch, gives it a unique macrame appearance, and is set against a web of chain-5 arches. While the bullion stitch is a little tricky at first, the effect is well worth the effort.” from page 31 of “’s Fabulous & Flirty Crochet” (Quarry Books, 2006).

Gauge is 3 1/8” measured from base of 1 bullion stitch to the next and approximately 5 rows = 2 1/4” over Bullion Pattern stitch.
