Crochet V stitch tutorial

crochet  V stitch tutorial

The V stitch is a beautiful and easy stitch that gives a great lacy look to your work. Whether it’s the base of your work or a border you’ll love how quick it is to work up and the best part is you probably already know the stitches for it!

This 2 row repeat is awesome for beginners and pros alike. The V stitch has many variations but, they are all based off this basic stitch.

This stitch is great for an open work texture in blankets, cowls, scarves, grocery bags, and so much more.

It looks great with variegated and self striping yarns as well as with color changes.
