The V-Stitch pattern is what I am using a blanket pattern that I will be sharing inside of the Crochet Academy that is to come in the coming weeks. It’s easy and simple that you could create squares for a blanket or use the pattern for a washcloth – which is one of my favorite patterns.
The V-Stitch pattern can be made flat for blankets, shawls, and shirts. It can also be made curly for borders, flowers, fluffy scarfs, or novelty decorations. You can use single crochet, double crochet, half-double crochet, and treble crochet – just depending on what kind of look you’re going after!
Hook: G (4.25mm)
Medium worsted weight yarn
slst: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
The V-stitch: To complete each V-stitch, work 1 dc st, 1 ch st, and 1 more dc st in the same chain or space.
To get started with this create your slst and ch 50
Row 1: DC in 5th ch from hook (counts as first V-st); *sk 2 chs, V-st in next ch; rep from * across; ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), turn.
Row 2: DC in first ch-1 sp; *V-st in ch-1 sp of next V-st; rep from * across, end with V-st in last sp; ch 4, turn.
Repeat row 2 for pattern until you’ve reached your desired size.
Once you’ve mastered this pattern you can start creating your own blankets and scarves as mentioned earlier.
Begin with a chain multiple of 3+2 and then just follow the pattern as mentioned above.
A quick note, if you want to be notified when the Crochet Academy opens, I invite you to the Crochet Bistro – where you can get started with some of the crochet basics and get access to the crochet stitch library.
