Yeah, I know…cutting it close again 😉

Today I have a stitch pattern for you featuring front and back posts which alternate to make a reversible fabric.  I also had the brainstorm to try something different:  using an extended sc for the first row; hope y’all like it…pictures and formal pattern is forthcoming!

Reversible Post Stitches

ext sc:  insert hook into ch, pull up a loop, ch 1, yo and pull through two loops to complete stitch.

fpdc:  yo, insert hook around st from front to back under next stitch one row below, pull up a loop around post of stitch, yo and pull through both loops.

bpdc:  yo, insert hook around st from back to front over next stitch one row below, pull up a loop around post of stitch, yo and pull through both loops.

Ch 27

Row 1 (wrong side):  extended sc (ext sc) in 3rd ch and ea ch across.  ch 1, turn.

Row 2 (right side):  sc in first st; fpdc around first ext sc, [bpdc around next ext sc, fpdc around next ext sc] across, sc in last st.  ch 1, turn.

Rep Row 2 to desired size, ending with a wrong side row.

Final (right side) Row:  sc in each st across; fasten off.

Well…it’s later than I planned, but technically it’s still Friday, so…I got the idea to try something different!

My goal is to share as many types, stitches and techniques of crochet as I know of in the hopes that it will encourage and inspire the urge to learn something new.  I’ll likely have to update it over the course of the month…but here goes!

Bavarian Crochet

Broomstick Lace

Bruges Lace

Camel Crochet

Once again, one of my favorite times of the year has come around again…National Crochet Month!!!

Every year I make an effort to stretch my crochet boundaries.  My goal is to learn something new, refine what I’ve learned or try and catch up on my projects! 😉

This year I invite you to join me for crochet demos at Slip Stitch Needlecraft, my local yarn shop.  Please see the shop’s Verlocal link for schedule.

In addition, I plan to post something crochet-related here on the blog every Friday to give you some inspiration for the weekend…and you could always check me out on Ravelry!

Happy Hooking!!!
