Double Crochet V-Stitch

I am excited to teach you the classic V-stitch pattern. This is an easy crochet stitch to learn. The simple v-stitch pattern is a great one to use to make crochet projects, like baby blankets blankets, lap blankets, afhghans, or even scarves. 

The stitch gets its name because it is made using double crochet stitches, in the shape of a v. There are a few variations on this basic v double crochet stitch pattern that I am also excited to teach you how to make. 

Why do I love the v-stitch?

I have a special place in my heart for this v-stitch pattern. When I was a beginner crocheter, many years ago, the classic double crochet v-stitch was the first crochet stitch I used to make a small lap blanket. 

I believe that this is the perfect beginner crochet stitch pattern to use for any project. This is such a great stitch because you really only need to know two stitches, a double crochet and a chain stitch. After that, learning where to place your stitches is all you have to determine. Making this a great beginner stitch pattern!

These are the two basic crochet stitches, but I will also show you some v-stitch variations that use a single crochet, and a treble crochet stitch.

Making a Solid Row at Each End

Sometimes when I am using this v stitch, I like to make a solid row at the beginning and ends of my crochet project. I have found that this helps the crochet project to help hold it’s shape. To do this I prefer to use a single crochet stitch, or half double crochet stitch to make up the entire row. Then, I follow the instructions for row 1 and row 2 outlined above. 

What are the different types of Crochet V-Stitch?

The different types of crochet v stitch are made with different stitch combinations. Several of them are still created with the double crochet stitch. The main difference across the double crochet v stitches is that they either have no chain stitches in between, one chain stitch, or two chain stitches. 

The other crochet v stitch variations use crochet stitches other than double crochet. Above I have written instructions for the v stitch using a single crochet, half double crochet, treble crochet, and even a double crochet cluster. 

Double Crochet V Stitch

Using the v double crochet stitch is a lot of fun if you are looking for an easy crochet stitch that works up quickly. This is a great stitch pattern if you are looking for a simple stitch, or are just learning how to crochet.
