    I've used alternating front and back post double crochet with a variety of yarns and hook sizes to crochet everything from full size blankets to baby afghans, scarves, dish cloths and more. It makes a beautiful pattern. It's an easy, fast, and relaxing stitch to use for those who are busy with work, family, or both. I can do more, but because of the look and the stress-free process, I find myself defaulting to this combination when I just want to crochet and chill.

    Mine looks like a yarn brick. I think I have a solution, but this is just a warning to all crocheters... Beware of Tight Yarn!!!!
