Split Front Post Treble Crochet (Modified Prong Stitch)

Updated: Jan 28



Today you'll learn how to add incredible texture and design to your crochet pieces without having the gap in the back that results from front post crochet. I'll walk you through the steps and you'll get to experience for yourself how fun this stitch really is.


Courtney, from Creations by Courtney, asked me to make this tutorial for her. She designs amazing garments that utilize this stitch and I know that she would just LOVE if you would visit her website. She's constantly creating beautiful, new and innovative garment patterns made for all body types. Her website is: https://creationsbycourtney.com
