I love the texture of post stitches in a stitch pattern. However, when worked in the round, sometimes post stitches can get lost at the joins of the rounds because ch3 has to count for a dc. One way to eliminate this problem is to work in a spiral instead of rounds. In this video, I show you how to work this beautiful stitch pattern in the round, in spiral, without joining at the end of the rounds. The results are perfect post stitch texture throughout the entire project.

The pattern has a 10 stitch repeat. Using worsted weight yarn and an I/9 (5.5mm) crochet hook, 8 repeats work well for a 20" circumference cowl. And 3 repeats work well for a wristlet.

For this project, I used

1 skein of Kristin Omdahl Yarns Be So Bold (100% worsted weight bamboo) in colorway MIa's Malachite Meadow
I/9 (5.5mm) crochet hook
Yarn needle
Scissors

Gauge: 2.75" wide per 10 stitch repeat

Finished sizes: 8" circumference for wristlet, 20" circumference for cowl

Specialty stitches:
FPDC (Front Post Double Crochet): yo, insert hook from front to back, right to left, around the vertical post of the specified stitch, pull up a loop. You now have 3 loops on your hook. (Yo, pull through 2 loops) twice.
