Such a fun texture to this easy crochet stitch. The back and front loop crochet stitch is made from single crochet stitches. You alternate making the stitches in the front and back loops of the previous row's stitches just as the name suggests. If you are looking for a nice tight weave, this is a great stitch to use.
