Front post stitches are raised crochet stitches on the surface of the fabric facing you. You can create a front-post double-crochet (abbreviated FP dc) stitch with these steps and some practice.
What does front post mean in crochet?
The Front Post Double Crochet is a method for making texture on the right side of your fabric. It is made by working into the row below, and pulls the fabric up and out on the right side, forming a bump in the fabric. It’s a technique used in cables, ribbing, simulated stitches, and basketweaves.
What is front and back post in crochet?
Front and back post crochet stitches are used to create texture in crochet. You’ll see these used in crochet cables or a ribbed edging around the bottom of a hat or edge of a blanket and more. Instead of making your stitch through the loops at the top of the stitch, you make it around the stitch.
Where is the post on a single crochet?
Since a single crochet stitch doesn’t really have a post to work around, you’re going to insert the hook into your normal single crochet stitch, under the 2 loops. But instead of yarning over and pulling up a look, insert the hook from back to front under the 2 loops of the next stitch. That becomes the ‘post’.
