Special Stitches


Front Post Treble (fptr)

The front post treble stitches are created in the same way as all the other front post stitches.

Step 1: Yo twice

Step 2: Insert the hook around the post of the stitch below(in this case the sc stitch) (3 loops on hook)

Step 3: Yo and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook)

Step 4: Yo and pull through 2 loops on hook (3 loops on hook)

Step 5: Yo and pull through 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook)

Step 6: Yo and pull through the 2 remaining loops on the hook. Your Front Post Treble is complete.

Front Post Treble Two Together (fptr2tog)

As the title implies, you crochet 2 front post treble stitches together. It doesn’t matter if the two fptr stitches are crocheted around the same post or around 2 different posts. In this case, out 2 fptr stitches are crocheted around different posts and join together at the top.

Step 1: Make your first incomplete front post treble: yo twice, insert your hook around the post stitch 2 rows below (in this case the sc stitch) and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), yo and pull through 2 loops on hook (3 loops on hook), yo and pull through 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook), leave the incomplete fptr on the hook.

Step 2: Make your second incomplete front post treble: yo twice, insert your hook around the post stitch 2 rows below (in this case the sc stitch located 3 stitches away) and pull up a loop (5 loops on hook), yo and pull through 2 loops on hook (4 loops on hook), yo and pull through 2 loops on hook (3 loops on hook), leave the incomplete fptr on the hook.

Step 3: Complete the fptr2tog by yo and pull through all 3 loops on the hook.
