How to Crochet V Stitch Step-by-Step Instructions:

1.    Begin by crocheting a foundation chain. It needs to be in a multiple of 3 + 1. An example would be (7×3) 21 + 1 = 24.

2. To begin the crochet V Stitch pattern, start making a double crochet into the 5th stitch, chain one and add another double crochet into the same stitch (DC, CH1, DC). This will make your first crochet V stitch.

3.    Skip two stitches. Make your next V stitch into the next chain. Do this by making a double crochet, chain one, and double crochet (DC, CH1, DC) in the same stitch.

4.    Repeat step 3 until you make it all the way across.

5.    You should have 2 chains left at the end. Skip the next to last chain and double crochet (DC) the final chain.

6.    Turn the project over and chain 3 (CH 3).

7.    Skip the first stitch. Work your next V stitch into the middle of the V stitch located on the previous row. Use the same steps as before; double crochet, chain 1, double crochet (DC, CH1, DC).

8.    Repeat steps 5 through 7 until you have the desired length.

9.    Finish the project by weaving the ends in with a tapestry needle.
