If you make cabled crochet items, odds are you’re going to run into instructions telling you to work 2 (or more!) post stitches into the same stitch. Increasing in post stitches is as easy as any post stitch, but it gives a lot of people pause, and I’ve had many requests for help with this technique. So here’s how to increase with post stitches!

To increase with post stitches, whether they are front post stitches or back post stitches, dc or tr or however tall, you just work the second one around the same stitch, right below the first one! It’s just as easy as it sounds.
It’s the same working in rows or rounds, no difference. Working the following stitch will help hold the second “increase” post stitch in place, and tada, it’s done. I hope this video has helped answer your questions about increasing with post stitches!
