FPDC = Front Post Double Crochet
BPDC = Back Post Double Crochet


FPDC =Front Post Double Crochet:
  • Wrap the yarn over your crochet hook.
  • From the front of your work, insert your hook to the right side of your next stitch. If you are left handed, it will be the left of the stitch.
  • Bring it up on the opposite side of the stitch.
  • Wrap the yarn over your crochet hook.
  • 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.
  • Complete your double crochet the same way that a double crochet is created.
BPDC = Back Post Double Crochet:
  • Wrap the yarn over your crochet hook.
  • From the back of your work, insert your hook to the right side of your next stitch. If you are left handed, it will be the left of the stitch.
  • Bring it up and around to the opposite side of the stitch inserting the hook to the back of your work.
  • Wrap the yarn over your crochet hook.
  • Pull your yarn through. You will be pulling it in front of the post of the previous double crochet. This will give you 3 loops on your hook.
  • Complete your double crochet the same way that a double crochet is created.
Work a chain of 24, skip 2 chains, work a double crochet in each of the next 21 chains. The first chain 2 will count as the first stitch for a total of 22 stitch on the first row.

Basketweave Crochet Stitch

This is a pretty easy, stitch although it looks complex. The idea is to loop your double crochets -(DC), triple crochets-(TC) or double triple crochets-(DTC) around the post of the previous stitch. You will see those stitches referred to as (FPDC)-Front Post Double Crochet or (BPDC)-Back Post Double Crochet. You just do what it says, wrap your yarn around the post of the previous stitch, either the front or the back. You can incorporate the stitch into any pattern to add a variation. Let your imagination wander when it comes to crochet.
