Front post single crochet

Back post / front post single crochet (US) / double crochet (UK)

Abbreviations:

  • US terms: FPSC (front post single crochet) & BPSC (back post single crochet)
  • UK terms: FPDC (front post double crochet) & BPDC (back post double crochet)

This is usually marked by a plus-shaped symbol with a hook at the bottom – the direction of the hook indicates the kind of back post/front post single crochet stitches required:

  • Hook pointing to the left – hooked through the front of the crochet piece
  • Hook pointing to the right – hooked through the back of the crochet piece

How-to:

  • A front post single crochet stitch

We insert the hook from the front to the back near the stitch of the previous row and continue as with making a normal single crochet stitch: we crochet the place where we inserted the hook, and have two stitches on it. We crochet them together and get a single crochet relief stitch hooked through from the front.

  • A back post single crochet stitch

We insert the hook from the back to the front near the stitch of the previous row and continue as with making a normal single crochet stitch: we crochet the place where we inserted the hook, and have two stitches on it. We crochet them together and get a single crochet relief stitch hooked through from the back.
