Mysterious stitch or Indian bullion?

Iam stumped!! Have a look at this video... The outcome looks like bullion,but look at the technique. And,ladies, we're among the first few to have seen this in the web world - it was uploaded just a few days back :)
Now, can anyone solve the mystery of the technique? I tried to copy his method,but messed up everytime.




Enjoy!!
Love,luck and sunshine,
Deepa

Hi Deepa

I think that it is different from the bullion stitch that we are familiar with. It will be fun to have a play and see if we can replicate the stitch.

Thanks for pointing us to the video.

Astonishing way to do bullions indeed!!!And they look great! This is the beauty of this world, so many ways to do the same stitch

Thank you Deepa for sharing this!

Deepa ,this is bullion only...i've seen men working in aari style doing this...similarly they do french knot using one hand..as the style requires they retain their left hand always below the aari table/cot..

it looks like the bullion has a couple of cast on stitches at the end to hold the twists i think it looks like a great idea

:0 I dint get the techinique! the natural way of doiing bullion is also a struggle for me!

veena krishnakumar said...

YeAH I agree with poornima. I have seen something like this in aari:-)

really nice video deepa... same stitch has many types of techniques to do...

Jisha Madhu said...

As Poornima said, it is bullion stitch only. We use the other hand to wrap the thread, but here in this video, he is using the same hand in which he hold the needle to wrap the thread. Amazing... Will try...

Deepa said...

Thanks for clarifying,Poornima,Jisha and Veena. The bullion part is actually clear,but what Iam confused about is the steps before and after - he seems to be doing something totally different before creating the bullion and after.Any idea?

ay un movimiento al principio y final que no comprendo

Nela said...

deepa, usa ambas manos para enrollar el hilo, observe bien; al principio y final, al parecer primero sale en un punto enrolla el hilo, y se mete justo al lado, y va al reves con la aguja, alli hace como un nudo que luego desde abajo pesca, creo ver algo asi, parece una manera de sujetar el bullion

Nela said...

si a y b estan uno al lado del otro se hace el lingote, y luego se hace como una lazada en el lingote, un lazo que se va a pescar con la aguja por debajo en C, que luego vuelve a bajar en D justo al lado de C, y si observa bien usa una mano para enrollar pero sube la mano de abajo para tensar el hilo y poder enrollar con una mano, el truco es que el lingote esta sujeto desde abajo a la amarre ese extra├▒o que hace el principio y final del video, para ver bien repita el video al final y continue con el principio
