Hey, remember when I talked about back post crochet yesterday?
Remember when I thought it was weird and pretty and fascinating?
Consider my mind still blown because front post crochet is also a thing.
It stands to reason that if you can work a back post crochet, there's probably a technique out there for front post crochet. And, it's really not that "out there." It's on the Leisure Arts YouTube channel.
I was going to be consistent and post a front post double crochet video since I talked about back post double crochet yesterday, but whatever. That video doesn't seem to exist, and the double crochet is one of the most common stitches ever.
So this video is for the front post crochet treble stitches. I feel like we don't talk about treble crochet enough. I thought I'd posted a video on standard treble crochet stitches, but I hadn't. I had even planned to just post tutorials for right-handed and left-handed treble crochet videos for this week, but those videos don't seem to exist on the Leisure Arts channel, either. Which is weird, because I could have sworn that I saw them. But that just means I dreamed it, and I'm dreaming about searching for videos on YouTube again. I don't know what that means, and I probably don't want to.
Front post treble crochet!
So. Front post crochet, eh? How about that? I went searching through some pattern books and noticed that any time a granny square featured a type of sunburst design with long lines above the rest of the fabric in the square (kind of like when you do an SSK in knitting, but much more noticeable), the front post treble crochet was how you make it happen. I feel like I can do anything now!
Ordinarily, this would be the point in the post where I'd show you a project I was working on so that you could have proof that I had tried out the technique for myself.[Picture not included because I haven't tried this out for myself. Yet.]
I said I felt like I could do anything now. Not that I was actually doing it. Yet.
But soon I will! The process seems a little less mystifying now that I can pull up this video and play it on a loop while I try out some patterns.
I can't wait!
