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.
Have you tried it yet? If not, let’s see how to do it!
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.
