Now for back post treble crochet, we’re going to be going around the post the other way. So we are going to start with yarn over twice and then we’re going to go around the post of our next stitch by going from back to front to back so you can see the post is behind the work.

Yarn over…

…and pull up the loop so we have the four loops on our hook:

Yarn over…

…draw through two…

…yarn over draw through two…

…yarn over draw through the last two.

    I love working in both front and back post stitches, although I still sometimes find the back post stitch a little awkward at times.
