LEARN HOW TO CROCHET THE FRONT POST AND BACK POST DOUBLE CROCHET STITCH:
Keep reading to learn how to crochet the front post and back post double crochet stitch. These crochet stitches are great stitches to add ribbing & texture to any crochet pattern. They aren’t too complex, because the steps are almost the same as with the regular double crochet stitch, however you’ll have to dive more into the crochet stitch anatomy to conquer it.
If you have bought one of my crochet patterns, you might wonder how it is done. The pattern always offers written text in addition to charts, but now I will give you a lot of additional explanations. Most importantly there is a video of how to crochet this stitch on the bottom.

MATERIALS YOU’LL NEED TO LEARN THE FRONT POST AND BACK POST DOUBLE CROCHET STITCH:
To follow this crochet tutorial you’ll need a crochet hook. When I crochet I usually use 2 types of crochet hooks. I’ve listed them below:
- Knitpro – Symphonie Rose Crochet Hooks – My first choice as of now is the Symphonie Rose Crochet Hooks from KnitPro. They opened my world to wood hooks & impressed me with their amazing lightness & how they feel in my hand. Even though they’re not padded, they never give me any strain while using them. I’ve only come across them in sets They are available here:
- KnitPro – Waves Crochet Hooks – Are the crochet hooks I use almost as my favorite. They are padded hooks & are comfortable to crochet with. They are a little heavier than wooden hooks, but the padded comfort is truly amazing. You can buy these both in sets & alone. They are available here:
- Love Crochet
- Wool Warehouse
- Wool Warehouse (set)
