Backpost Crochet

Backpost Crochet can be any of the basic stitches such as Single Crochet or Double Crochet – for these two the abbreviations will be BPSC and BPDC. You can also work the stitch in a Treble Crochet, however as this is a loose stitch, it does not give the desired effect in my opinion.
What is significant about backpost crochet stitches, is that instead of working in the “V” of a stitch, you work around the stem of this.
In this example I am working a Backpost Double Crochet (BPDC).

Instructions

Backpost Single Crochet (BPSC):
Insert your hook on the right side of the stem and move around and out on the left side. Wrap your yarn around your hook and lead it back through, leaving you with two loops on your hook.
Finish the stitch as you would a regular stitch. In this case wrap yarn around hook and push through both loops.

Backpost Double Crochet (BPDC):
Wrap your yarn around your hook and work your hook from the backside towards you. Insert it on the right side of the stem and move around and out on the left side. Wrap your yarn around your hook and lead it back through, leaving you with three loops on your hook.
Finish the stitch as you would a regular stitch. In this case wrap yarn around hook and push through two loops. Wrap once more and push through the remaining two loops.

I hope that now that you know how to work this stitch, you will try to incorporate it in your future crochet projects. Below you can even find some patterns in which, I have used this stitch.
