Yes, it looks like the bullion stitch but looks are deceiving!
In other words, if you’re not familiar with the bullion stitch you can crochet this beautiful square without having to learn a new stitch. This square is perfect for so many projects, from afghans and blankets to shawls and ponchos to purses and tote bags. Possibilities are endless. Works beautifully as a stash buster, too.
This is the adeptly named “Mock Bullion Flames’ crochet pattern and it’s free! It’s by designer Kati Donahue of KatiDCreations. You’ll find a written pattern — plus plenty of photos and links to tutorials if you need them. You’ll have these squares crocheted in no time for your next project.
