Cone Bullion Knot is another variation of the bullion knot. The working in this stitch is entirely the same except that while looping the thread, the first couple of loops are let little loose instead of tightening them.
What you will need?
- Any fabric.
- Embroidery hoop, 15cm (6″) (Bigger if you are working on a larger design) ( You can purchase a set of 6 hoops from Amazon for your basic needs.)
- Tapestry needle
- Embroidery thread (You can buy this pack of 36 shades of the DMC embroidery floss.)
How many strands of floss do you need for making the Cone Bullion?
You can use all 6 strands of the floss. But if you are working on a finer design, then start with 2 strands of floss and increase the number of strands according to your design. I have used all 6 strands of floss for this design.
Step by Step Pictorial Process of making the Cone Bullion Knot
1. Bring the needle up and insert at desired length back to the point where you brought up the needle as shown above.
2. Loop the thread around the needle. Let the first couple of loops loose.
3. Complete the loops for your desired number of times. Gently pull the needle to form the bullion knot.
4. Continue working in a similar fashion for the rest of the design.
