How to Work Front-Post Double-Crochet Stitches

7 of 8 in Series: The Essentials of Double Crochet

Front post stitches are raised crochet stitches on the surface of the fabric facing you. You can create a front-post double-crochet (abbreviated FP dc) stitch with these steps and some practice.
1

Work a row of normal double crochet (dc) for the first row and turn.

Follow the standard procedure for creating a row.
2

Chain (ch) 2 for your first double crochet.

Because a post stitch is shorter than a normal stitch, you make the turning chain with one chain stitch less than the normal turning chain requires.
3

Yarn over (yo) and insert your hook from front to back between the posts of the first and second double crochet of the row below, and then from back to front again between the posts of the second and third stitches.

The hook should now be positioned horizontally behind the double crochet that you’re working around.
4

Yarn over and draw the yarn around the post of the stitch.

You now have 3 loops on the hook.
5

Yarn over and draw the yarn through the 2 loops on the hook, twice.

One front post double crochet (FP dc) is complete.
6

Take a look at the symbol for front post double crochet.

Stitch diagrams use symbols to give you a pictorial description of the pattern design — and may or may not include written directions. This is the symbol for front post double crochet in crochet stitch diagrams.

How to Crochet Popcorn Stitch

This popcorn crochet stitch really pops! The popcorn stitch (abbreviated pop or pc) is a nicely rounded, compact oval that stands out from the fabric. It takes a bit more time to make than other raised stitches, but it’s well worth the effort.
For even more fun, you can work popcorn stitches so that they “pop” to the front or the back of the fabric, depending on where you want them to stand out.
Work a 5-double-crochet popcorn stitch so that it pops to the front of your design:
  1. Work 5 double crochet (dc) stitches in the same stitch.
  2. Drop the loop from your hook.
  3. Insert your hook from front to back under the top 2 loops of the first double crochet of the group.
  4. Grab the dropped loop with your hook and pull it through the stitch.

    One front-popping popcorn is complete.

You can also pop to the back of the work:
  1. Work 5 double crochet (dc) stitches in the same stitch.
  2. Drop the loop from your hook.
  3. Insert your hook from back to front under the top 2 loops of the first double crochet of the group.
  4. Grab the dropped loop with your hook and pull it through the stitch.

In stitch diagrams, the stitch symbol is the same for a back or front popcorn.

  11. Im a bit confused by the bpdc, I get a sort of edge from them that I cant see on your boot, except maybe when you have it inside out sewing the bottom. Was I supposed to turn it inside out one more time? Yours looks more like fpdc.But then again I have never done this stich before.

  12. Very cute. thank you for the pattern and post. I am also having the same issue as Ann, and I am also new to bpdc.

    ReplyDelete
  13. There are no bpdc in this pattern, they are all fpdc. Are you counting the chain ones of the decrease rounds as an actual stitch? If not the count is off.

  14. When I started the booties it was a little hard for to understand the pattern. But the pictures made it easier for me to understand what was being done. Thanks for the visuals.
