For my “Oversized Crocheted Blanket” sweater I used the V-stitch. I really enjoyed it because it’s easy and created a fabric that had a nice drape and texture. Below you can find a picture tutorial to help you use the v stitch in your projects.
Chain any number of odd stitches (For my sweater I chained 79)
(Please note that on row 2 and for the remainder of the pattern you are double crocheting into the SPACE between the two double crochet stitches that form the V shape)
Row 1 2 DC in 5th ch from hook, *skip 1 ch, 2dc in next ch. Repeat from * across the row. 1dc in last stitch, ch 3, turn.
Row 2 Make 2 dc in space below 5th ch from hook ( this is the space between the first V shape formed by 2 dc stitches). Make 2dc in the middle of each dc group across the row. At the end of the row make 1 dc in the last stitch, which is the turning chain from the previous row. Ch 3, turn.
Repeat row 2 until your piece measures 31 ” long.
That’s all there is to it! Do you think you’d like to try this stitch?
