How To Bpsc Crochet?


In crochet how do I do a Fpsc?

I have a problem...I am currently trying to crochet this beautiful afghan but the instructions call for a Fpsc (front post single crochet). How do I do this?! It says to "insert hook from front to back to front around stitch specified and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook". But where do I do this and how do you get a hook from front to back to front?! The pattern requires Bpsc as well.

I'm a visual person...here's a video showing you how... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5hN9hNHG_U&feature=related

In the video they use a double crochet, but it's easy to convert to singles.

Amigurumi spiral crochet?

Hello, I am trying to make Amigurumi. I can crochet in rounds, (or at least i think i can) but instead of a sphere, i always get a tube instead. Could anyone tell me what it is I'm doing wrong? Thanks! I would like to add that i am aware of how to crochet a tube. It's crocheting a ball that i'm having difficulty with. Do i need to increase stitches, or something?

to crochet a ball you need to increase. first round chain 2, make 5 single crochet into the second chain from the hook.
put a little marker, like a piece of contrasting yarn in the last stitch to keep track of your rounds because the key with
Amiguri is it continues in a spiral, you don't finish each round.
next round, make 2 single crochet in each single crochet, so you have 10 crochet at the end of the round, mark the end of the round.
the next round you crochet 2 single crochet into the first stitch, 1 single crochet in the next, 2 in the next, 1 in the next so you have 15 single crochets (sc) at the end.
next round, 2 single crochet in the next, then 1 in the next, 1 in the next, then 2 in the next, around until you have 20 crochet.
once you have the size circle you want, just crochet even, on stitch in every stitch, to work down the body of your critter.
I put a link to a wicked cute penguin below, so you can get a sense of the pattern.

raised single crochet?

could someone please give instructions on how to do a raised single crochet

"Raised" crochet is an external texture to the stitch, which allows interesting patterns and can have many different designs. Given single crochet is just two loops, I'm unsure one could attain that external texture, but you can with double crochet and triple (or treble) crochet (also search on basketweave and post stitch).
