How to Stitch a Front Post Double Crochet

Video Tutorial: Front Post Back Post

Video Tutorial: Lefty Front Post Back Post

Written by Teresa Richardson

Wrap the yarn over your crochet hook. This next step will show the front post double crochet. The stitch will be worked around the post of the previous double crochet.

Step 2

Insert your hook to the right side of your next stitch.

Step 3

Bring it around the back and up on the left side of the stitch.

Step 4

Wrap the yarn over your crochet hook.

Step 5

Pull your yarn through. You will be pulling it behind the post of the previous double crochet. This will give you 3 loops on your hook.

Step 6

Complete your double crochet the same way that a double crochet is created.

Step 7

The placement of the hook and yarn create a raised stitch. Sometimes it is difficult to see the results with the first few stitches. As you progress in your work, the texture will start to take place.
