Front Post Double Crochet = FPdc

A front post double crochet is a type of stitch in crocheting. You don’t work into the top loops of the stitch like you normally would.

Instead, you will work around the post (the vertical part) of the stitch from the front side.

This creates a raised effect on the front side of the fabric.

Make the stitch in the back loop only of the next stitch.
