I have always been a big fan of the V-stitch and have used it in many other projects. This V-stitch variation utilizes a unique stitch placement to create a completely different look.

With a standard double crochet V-stitch, you would work the V-stitch in the ch 1 space from the previous row’s V-stitch. With this variation, you are skipping the first dc and ch 1 sp of the V-stitch from the previous row and working into the 2nd dc of the V-stitch group. This slight variation provides lovely drape and a more open stitch.

I am providing a complete video tutorial for this stitch as well as complete written pattern instructions + photo tutorial below. If you aren’t able to view the video on the blog you can also find it here it on my YouTube Channel. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get notified whenever I post a new video.
