Step-by-Step Description for Beginners

  • This beautiful crochet motif is worked in row. We begin the work by making a foundation chain.
     How to start crochet you will know with our instruction. We begin to crochet a nice motif for laces.
  • The first row is a row of Crochet Bullion Block stitches.
    In this part you can see how to make crochet bullion block stitches.



  • Then there will be two rows of chain spaces. The fourth row is a row we were we are making the chain space for the next row and at the same time creating the folded rows of double crochet stitches that are beautiful coming to the front of the motif.
    This crocheted motif is made using such crochet stitches as bullion block stitch, and front post stitches.
  • The next fifth row is a simple row of larger chain spaces and the last row is a row of trimming which worked using different tall stitches and front post bullion block stitches.
    I am about to finish row 5, I remind you we are working on the back. So to complete this row chain 5 for the last chain space and sc into the last chain space of 3 of previous row. Row 5 is ready!
  • To complete this beautiful crocheted motif you would need to make 6 rows of stitches.
    Crochet trim in the motif.



  • You can see how the same crocheted motif made of different yarn looks by checking the images below the video tutorial.
    To make this beautiful motif you can use any type of yarn. I was working with angora yarn.
  • To create this Crochet motif we were using angora yarn: 60% polyacrylic, 40% mohair; 500m in 100g; crochet hook 2.5mm or 2.00mm.
    Another the exact same motif I made for demonstration of white angora yarn with lurex, and another one of more heavy yarn.
  • Also we made some motifs for demonstration of cotton yarn: 55% cotton; 45% acrylic; 160m in 50g; crochet hook 3.00mm, 2.5mm or 2.00mm.
    This motif is made of cotton yarn. You can also use thread for this kind of motif.


This crochet motif can be a great element for embellishing any of your hand made cloth, a hat, or can be a nice element for home decore. This beautiful crochet motif can be used in Irish crochet projects, Freeform crochet or as an individual motif for decoration.

Written Pattern of Video Tutorial

Hi everyone. In todays tutorial I will show you how to crochet this beautiful motif which can be used in Irish crochet projects, Freeform crochet or as an individual motif for decoration. This crocheted motif is made using such crochet stitches as bullion block stitch, and front post stitches. Once you create several the same motifs you may play with them and see how you would like them to be located in your project. Feel free to experiment with your ideas and also feel free to try different yarn or thread in creating this kind of motif.
For work I will be using angora yarn and a crochet hook.
Begin the work by making a chain of 20, and slip into the sixth chain stitch away from the hook. Now the foundation chain is ready. I will continue working in rows.
Begin row 1 – a row of Bullion block stitches: Turn the work to the back, chain 2 to start the row and now work into THIS foundation ring we’ve just created: make 6 bullion block stitches - dc to make the foundation for the block stitch, then YO and pull up a loop from under the post of this double, repeat 5 times 12345, then insert the hook into the foundation ring and pull up a loop, then YO and pull through all loops on the hook at once and chain 1 to complete the block stitch. The first bullion block stitch is ready! Continue in this way and crochet 5 more.
Let’s repeat once again together: dc into the ring, then work around the post of this dc, YO and pull up a loop 12345, then pull up a loop from the foundation ring, YO pull through all loops on the hook and chain 1. The second Bullion block stitch is made. Continue in this way and crochet 4 more block stitches into the ring the same way.
I am done working into the ring, 6 block stitches are made. Now continue and work through the stitches of the foundation chain. Skip the next chain stitch – THIS ONE – that we worked a slip stitch into to create the foundation ring and dc into the next chain stitch, work the same block stitch as before: YO pull up a loop 12345 then pull up a loop through the same chain stitch of the foundation chain, YO pull through all loop on the hook and chain 1.


Continue the same, skip 1 chain stitch on the foundation chain and work the same block stitch into the second chain stitch.
The next block stitch I will be working into the third chain stitch of the foundation chain (skip the next 2 stitches and dc into the third one). Around this post of the dc stitch work the same block stitch. Then make 2 more block stitch in a row by working into each second stitch of the foundation (next block stitch will be made into THIS chain stitch, and the next one – into THIS one).
Here I completed 3 block stitches. In between these block stitches we skipped 1 chain stitch HER on the foundation. Now repeat the same stitch sequence: start the next block stitch by working into the third chain stitch of the foundation chain, and the next 2 will be made in a row into each second stitch of the foundation (so again the second block stitch will be made into THIS chain stitch, then we skip 1 and the third one will be made into the next stitch). Continue and make 3 more block stitches.
I completed my last 3 block stitches. HERE they are. In between these stitches I skipped 1 chain stitch in the foundation. So right now we have 14 bullion block stitches made in this row.
Let’s continue and complete this first row. Here I completed my last block stitch with a chain stitch. Continue chain 1 more, skip 1 chain stitch on the foundation and sc into the last chain stitch of the foundation chain. The first row is finished!
Turn the work to the other side and start row 2: chain 4 for the chain space, sc into the following chain space of 1 of previous row. Then 4 again for the chain space and sc into the chain space between the following block stitches. Repeat the same: chain 4 and sc into the following chain space between the next block stitches. Continue and work the same till you reach the last block stitch of previous row, then we will continue together and I will show you how to complete this row.
