Front Post and Back Post Double Crochet Stitches

From this post, you’ll learn how to make a front post and back post double crochet stitches. With their help you can make post stitch ribbing or create texture on blankets and clothing. The front and back post double crochet pulls the stitch of the previous row up, forming a bump on the fabric. The difference between them and usual double crochet is how to attach them to the previous row. It’s important to make a row of foundation stitches (sc, dc, hdc, tc) because you are going to work into the row below that is why you can’t crochet into the chain stitches.

NOTE: If you’ve worked a row of front post double crochet stitches (back post double crochet), from the wrong side, work a row of back post double crochet stitches (front post double crochet). The front post and back post can be done using many stitches (sc,hdc,tc etc), but here we learn the most popular double crochet stitch.
