LoveCrochet

Size: 5 x 5 inch (12, 7 cm)

Skill Level: Easy

Notes:
Tension/Gauge is not necessary for this project to be perfect

I use US Crochet stitch terminology

Abbreviations:
CH – chain
SL ST – slip stitch
SC – single crochet
DC – double crochet
FPDC – front post double crochet

HOW TO DO THE FPDC:
Step 1:
Yarn over.
Step 2:
Insert your crochet hook from front to back (right to left if you are a right-handed crocheter), so that it goes around the post that is positioned directly below it in the previous row of your crochet work.
Step 3:
Yarn over and pull through. There should now be three loops on your hook.
Step 4:
Yarn over and pull through two of the three loops that are on the hook.
Step 5:
Yarn over and pull through the remaining two loops on your hook.
