This post is a part of a bigger article, so check it out here: Post Stitches.

Below you can see abbreviations, which you will find in written crochet patterns:

  • US terms: FPDC (front post double crochet) & BPDC (back post double crochet)
  • UK terms: FPTR (front post teble) & BPTR (back post treble)

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 double crochet stitch

Yarn over and 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 double crochet stitch: yarn over and pull up the loop, so that you have three stitches on the hook. Yarn over again, pull through the first two loops, and then through another two. That’s how you get a front post single crochet.

  • Back post double crochet stitch

Yarn over and 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 double crochet stitch: yarn over and pull up the loop, so that you have three stitches on the hook. Yarn over again, pull through the first two loops, and then through another two. That’s how you get a back post single crochet.
