This video tutorial has been a long time coming, as it showcases a technique I used in one of my first crochet patterns! I’ve learned a lot since then – including the need for this tutorial. What I haven’t found is an official name for this technique – so if you know of a “real” name for what I’ve termed the shallow post stitch, please do let me know!

I hope these videos give you a new way to use post stitches – and help you make all sorts of neat crochet projects! The basic idea is that you go around the very top of the post, right under the top “Vs” instead of down lower on the post of the stitch. If you can do one, you can do the other – and try them both to see which look you like best!
