What are you most proud of? I love the look of this hat. It is very thick and will stretch as well as keep its shape. I want one for myself now!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Familiarize yourself with front post double crochet and back post double crochet techniques before beginning this project. Don't be intimidated though. It is easy and just a matter of knowing where to put the hook and pull the yarn through.

Does Vickie teach front post and back post in this class?

05/23/2014 Flag

Hi FranApple, Vickie does not teach front post (FP) and back post (BP) in this class. She does teach the single (SC), double (DC) and half double (HDC). The difference between DC and FPDC (or BPDC) is just a matter of where you place the hook within the previous row. Maybe this project doesn't belong linked to Crochet Lab for that reason, but I automatically link all my crochet projects to this class. I never even held a hook before this class and now I crochet almost everyday and this is where I learned my first stitches and discovered a love for crocheting! Here is a short video tutorial that shows you where to place your hook for FPDC. http://newstitchaday.com/front-post-double-crochet-stitch/
