How does it work?

Relief stitches differ from basic stitches only by the place through which the hook is inserted, but that’s exactly the point. You work it around the stitch from the previous row, so differently than regular stitches. Depending on the way we insert the hook, we create a relief stitch hooked either from the front or the back. Any basic stitch may become a relief stitch, so it’s very versatile.

How-to

  • Front post single crochet stitch

Insert the hook from the front to the back around the stitch of the previous row. Do it in a way, so that you could “pull” this stitch toward you. Continue as with making a normal single crochet stitch: yarn over and pull up the loop, so that you have two stitches on the hook. Yarn over again, pull through both of the loops, and get a front post single crochet.

  • Back post single crochet stitch

Insert the hook from the back to the front around the stitch of the previous row. Do it in a way, so that you could “push” this stitch behind. Continue as with making a normal single crochet stitch: yarn over and pull up the loop, so that you have two stitches on the hook. Yarn over again, pull through both of the loops, and get a back post single crochet.
