Front Post and Back Post Double Crochet Stitch

This Crochet a Front Post and Back Post Double Stitch how-to video is an excellent left-handed tutorial to show you how to get this great pattern. For this specific crochet stitch you are going to work around the post of the stitches instead of working through, or into, the stitches. This crochet video will show you not only how easy it is to make this stitch, but also how these stitches creat a great closed-stitch pattern. This is particularly great for making a crochet hat that will keep you nice and snuggly all winter long!

I can't thank you enough for all the left handed tutorials. I am trying to teach a friend how to crochet and completely forgot she is left handed. Chaining was easy, and explaining certain things was also but when it came to some fancier stitches I was at a loss. These tutorials did the trick. Thanks again for posting them.
