    I struggle with the Backpost stitch at the beginning of a row. Any help?

      It depends on what stitch you are using to begin the row with, for instance if you are using a single crochet, chain on turn, and then single crochet behind the stitch below it, instead of going between stitches the way we are normally use to doing it. I hope that helps you, and keep on trying never give up, you can do anything you want if you don’t give up. Good luck!
