Crochet-V-Stitch by Janice Jones |Published May 12, 2022
If you look closely at the fabric created by the Crochet V Stitch, you'll immediately know how it got its name. Check out all the tiny V's that are created by double crochet stitches and chains. Easy?
Yes, this is a great stitch for beginners to practice. If you can make a double crochet stitch and a chain stitch, they you can make the Crochet V stitch.
This stitch is worked over multiples of 3 plus 7 stitches, meaning that you will need to chain a multiple of 3 and then add 7 stitches.
If you want to practice this stitch, grab some yarn and a hook, and follow along.
To make a swatch so that you will see the little V's, I recommend at least chaining 22 stitches (3x5=15) + 7 = 22. Or, if you want to go directly to a quick project, learn the Crochet V stitch by making a lovely Springtime Crocheted V Stitch Dishcloth (Free Pattern on this Website)
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
ea = each
rep = repeat
sl st = slip stitch
st = stitch
sk = skip
The V-stitch: Each V-stitch consists of 1 dc st, 1 ch st, and 1 more dc st, all worked into the same chain or chain space. For this pattern, row 2 (below) is worked over and over for the length of the swatch.
For more information on working into the initial chain, refer to my article about crocheting the second row. In this tutorial, you will learn that you can work into the top two loops of the chain row, one of the loops of the chain, or into the bump on the back of the chain row. For this practice, choose whichever way works best for you.
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook. (3 chains count as one dc here and everywhere unless noted). Ch 1, skip next ch, [dc in next ch, ch 1, dc in same ch. Skip next ch.] Rep across the row. At the end of the row (4 chain stitches left) ch 1, skip 2 chs, then work 1 dc in ea of the next 2 ch sts. Turn. Ch 3.
Row 2: Row 2:Dc in first dc. Ch 1, work 1 v st in ea v st across the row. Ch 1, skip next ch, work 1 dc in ea of the last 2 dc sts. Turn. Ch
Last Row. Do not Chain 3. Fasten off.
