Special stitches used: front post double crochet (fpdc) and back post double crochet (bpdc)
Front and back post crochet stitches are used to create wonderful texture in crochet. Instead of making your stitch through the loops at the top of the stitch, you make it around the stitch. Everything else stays the same. The most challenging things about crochet post stitches are knowing where and how to insert the hook. There are front post stitches and back post stitches.
For front post double crochet stitches (fpdc): yarn over, insert your hook from front to back then from back to front around post of stitch indicated, yarn over, pull through stitch, then finish your double crochet as normal, yarn over, pull through 2 lps, yarn over, pull through last 2 lps
For back post double crochet stitches (bpdc): yarn over, you insert your hook from back to front then from front to back around post stitch indicated, yarn over, pull through stitch, then finish your double crochet as normal, yarn over, pull through 2 lps, yarn over, pull through last 2 lps
1) The direction shown are for M size but can be easily converted into bigger size or smaller size – just measure your starting foundation chain shorter or longer.
2) In my project: A Ch 3 at beg of the row counts as dc in the 1st row only.
3) Join rows by sl st to create rounds.
4) Work from bottom up. Make borders at the bottom and at the top. Create a drawstring and tassels on the top.
