Crochet Post Stitches

Crochet post stitches are so called because they are worked around the post of the
stitch, they can be used in a variety of designs from ribbing, cabling etc.

I have put together a pictorial below on how to do the front and back post using a dc
or tr (UK).

See my free Baby Puff Stitch Cardigan and Fringed Scarf patterns using this stitch.
