Learn how to master back post double crochet aka BPDC in a few simple steps. The back post double crochet is a variation of the double crochet with a change of position where you wrap the yarn on your fabric. Once you have mastered this stitch you will be open to a new world of textured crochet from 3D crochet patterns & cable crochet which can replicate the beautiful cable designs found in knitting.
