Front Post Double Treble Stitch (Fpdtr)

The Front Post Stitches are often used in crochet to help give a piece texture.  In front post stitches, instead of crocheting into the top of a stitch, you crochet around the “body” of the stitch.

To do this particular stitch you start off by doing yarn over 3 times.

Insert the hook between two stitches from front to back, then around back through the front. Your hook should be behind only the stitch you are crocheting into, like this.
