How to crochet the V stitch (video & diagram)

The V-stitch is so named because of the obvious repeating V pattern carried throughout. Using multiple colors can really help make the pattern more distinctive. For this fun pattern, you can use any yarn and needle you like. A thicker material works great if you want a really cozy blanket.
To master this pattern, you'll need to know single crochets, double crochets, and chain stitches.

This pattern is very simple and easy to master. Once you work your stitches on the first two rows, following the pattern to finish the rest of the blanket is easy.
After your base stitches and first row, you'll switch to a second color. Then you'll change colors every row after that. You can simplify things by sticking to two colors, but a three color pattern looks beautiful too.
As an alternative, you could use a multi-colored thread. While the pattern won't be quite as obvious, it still looks nice and adds texture.
If you are feeling overly ambitious, try making every row a different color. When you pair light and dark colors, the distinctive V pattern becomes very obvious.
The pattern features a strong pattern so you can keep a simple border, or you can take the sharp design over the edge with a funkier border.
Watch the video below to see just how easy this pattern is to follow. If you love this pattern or know someone who would enjoy this project, share it with your friends on Facebook.
