FPdc – Front Post Double Crochet

Posted by on January 3, 2012 in Stitch Guide | 0 comments

Post stitches are stitches that are crocheted around the post of the stitch in the previous row, as appossed to a “normal” crochet stitch that you insert your hook into the top of the stitch in the previous round.

A Front Post double crochet (FPdc) is a dc that is crocheted around the post from front to back.  Here it is step by step.

1)  yo,

2)  insert hook from front to back, and then to front again, around the vertical post of the st (see pic)

3)  yo and pull up a loop,

4)  yo,

5)  pull through 2 loops

6)  yo,

7) pull through last 2 loops.

If you need some more help just send me a note and I’lll see if I can clarify anything better.

Happy Crocheting!
