Hello 🙂 It’s time to go back to basics. Now that many of us are stuck in our homes due to the coronavirus prevention, the best we can do with this much free time is to crochet! Well, today I have a ton of inspiration both for crochet beginners and seasoned creators, so dive in!

V-Stitch is one of the easiest and coolest techniques out there, because it really requires only basic knowledge of crocheting methods. It works up fast, so it’s very satisfying – perfect for quick blankets or accessories.

Fun and versatile

V-Stitch can be denser or looser depending on the tension you crochet with, but overall this technique is more on the lacy side. It’s great for delicate blankets or summer accessories, such as tunics or shawls.

This stitch is usually done with double crochet stitches, but you can find variations that use single crochet, treble or clusters. You can work it in rows or in a square.


Olivia used Drops Paris in two colors, which is 100% cotton yarn. Recommended hook size for this particular yarn is 5 mm, but you can use any yarn and corresponding crochet hook you want.

V-Stitch Tutorial by Hopeful Honey

V-Stitch starts with chain stitch of multiple of 2 + 2, which counts as a turning chain for double crochet. The main idea behind this technique is based on making two double crochets in one stitch, and skipping one stitch to give them space for creating “v” shape. Next rows are worked in the “dip” of the V, which create lovely zig-zag pattern.
It’s very easy, so be sure to check out Olivia’s tutorial for full info! It can be found here.
