'V' Stitch

This stitch is named for the way the stitches appear in a 'V'. It is most effective worked in "Half Double Crochet (hdc)" and "Double Crochet (dc)" or even longer stitch.


Start by working a chain in multiples of 3 stitches, plus an extra 2. So - if you want a row of 12 stitches total - you need to work 14 chains. 

  1. Turn, chain 1, half double crochet in 3rd chain from hook (not counting the loop already on the hook), chain 1, half double crochet into same chain as first hdc, *skip 2 chains, (hdc, ch1, hdc) into next chain*. Repeat from * to * ending with (hdc, ch1, hdc) into last stitch.
  2. Turn, chain 1, *(hdc, ch1, hdc) into chain 1 space*. Repeat from * to * to end of row.
  3. Repeat row 2.

If you'd prefer to work the v stitch crochet pattern in double crochet stitch, just substitute each hdc for dc.

Then the pattern would look like this...

  1. Turn, chain 1, double crochet in 3rd chain from hook (not counting the loop already on the hook), chain 1, double crochet into same chain as first dc, *skip 2 chains, (dc, ch1, dc) into next chain*. Repeat from * to * ending with (dc, ch1, dc) into last stitch.
  2. Turn, chain 1, *(dc, ch1, dc) into chain 1 space*. Repeat from * to * to end of row.
  3. Repeat row 2.
