Yeah, I know…cutting it close again ūüėČ

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.
