When working over rows from the side of the work, or working over diagonal stitches, it is sometimes called for to work around the post of a crochet stitch.
In the example below, a double crochet stitch (in black) is worked over the post of another double crochet stitch (in orange).
||This example will show how a double crochet stitch can be worked over the side of other crochet stitches. The photo shows the orange fabric to be worked.|
||Insert the hook under the post of the double crochet stitch and pull up a loop to begin the double crochet stitch.|
