Pattern Notes & Stitches to Know

FRONT POST DOUBLE CROCHET (FPDC) 

You will start with a row of dc

Ch 3 turn

Normally, you insert your hook in the top loops of the stitch. For post stitches, you insert your hook around the post of the stitch.

Insert hook behind the post then back to the front, pushing the post to the front.

Work a dc

You can see the stitch is pushed forward. So much can be created with just this simple stitch! I made an EASY RIBBED BEANIE by alternating dc and fp dc.

BACK POST DOUBLE CROCHET (BPDC)

Insert hook from the back to the front of the post, pushing the post to the back

Work a dc

The stitch is pushed to the back of the swatch. I used both the bpdc and fpdc for this BASKETWEAVE BEANIE.
