As my subject indicates, my pattern calls for a back post dc in 2 stitches and I haven't a clue. Can someone explain. I do know how to do a back post dc. So where to go from there? How do I involve 2 stitches? help, help, help. And thanks.

I would try to make 1 BPdc around 2 stitches to get a gather > this should make a tuck for shaping.

See if this works for the curve on the item.
Sounds like this is going to shape the toe part of a bootie.

I will send a Private Message with my E-mail address , so you can send me a picture . And more !!

the pattern was purchased from a crochet designer on Etsy. The design is for little orange booties with a big flower on the top. They are adorable. This instruction is on Rnd 3 of the top. Rnd 2 called from 20 BPdc and 21 sc. So you see it is about shaping the little thing. This next round calls for said (dreaded) BPdc around 2 sts. Does this help?

Look at the Picture and see if there are 2 seperate bp stitches or EVEN >>
Just a wild guess >>> 1 bp stitch > around < 2 stitches .

I don't see any pattern showing on the Michael's site that you posted , So I can't look at a picture and see what is called
for .

Is there a Name for the item > then it can be looked at and we all here on this forum can make a correct answer by seeing it .?

Still don't get it. Do you mean go in bp, yo, go in the next bp, yo. But then how many stitches would be on the hook -- 4? And then what? I wish my crochet was as dense as me.
