Creating A Vertical Ribbing In Single Crochet Using Post Stitches

This tutorial will show you how to create a vertical ribbing using front post double crochets (FPDC). This will create a thicker faux ribbing than if you used the front post single crochet (FPSC).

      It sounds like you should be getting a ribbed effect. Is it not looking ribbed? Make sure your stitches are lining up. As in, make sure your FPSCs are on top of each other and the same with the BPSC.

    Hi Deja, I want to create the chunky ribbing (like your example in the blue yarn). I am making your heart beanie. I have done one row with alternating two sc and two FPDC. So you mention that the next row will have the BPDC ?do I need to turn the work. thanks for your help Sue
