Q:

How do you crochet a basic V-stitch?

A:

Quick Answer

To crochet a basic V-stitch, crochet a base chain that is a multiple of three and add seven stitches to the chain. For instance, crochet 15 to create a chain that is a multiple of three, and add 7 additional stitches to make a chain that is 22 stitches long. After making the foundation chain, chain one, skip one, and double crochet in the next loop. Add a second double crochet in the same loop to make the V-stitch.

After making the first V-stitch, skip two and double chain twice in the next loop. Continue this process until four loops remain at the end of the chain. When four loops remain, chain one, skip two, and double chain in the last two loops on the chain.

To crochet the second row, turn the work, chain three, and double chain in the next double crochet. At the center of the row, double chain, chain one, and double chain again in the one chain found in the center of the V-stitch on the first row. Continue this process, and chain one, skip one, and double crochet in the final two loops at the end of the final row.

To create V-stitches without spaces, create a foundation chain in a multiple of six, and double chain twice in every other loop across the foundation chain beginning at the fourth chain from the crochet hook.
