If you know basic stitches, like how to double crochet and chain, you’re ready to start taking your crochet to the next level. Why not try V-stitches? These stitches are created by working into the same stitch twice, sometimes with chains in between the stitches. In this video, Corrina Ferguson explains the basics of V-stitches.

Corrina created the V-stitch fabric by working a row of double crochet, and then a row of V-stitches. When she is working the row of V-stitches, she is working a double crochet (dc), a chain 1 (ch 1), and another double crochet (dc) all into the same stitch. She then skips two stitches and repeats across the row. The (dc, ch 1, dc) is the V-stitch. When she is working the next row, double crochet stitches will be working into the chain-space in order for the stitch count to remain the same.

There are hundreds of different types of V-stitches. You can work them in all the basic stitches of crochet (single, half double, double, treble). You can make a fabric worked entirely in V-stitches, or break it up with other stitches, as Corrina did in this lesson. Now that you know the basic construction of how a V-stitch is worked, you can experiment with lots of V-stitch stitch patterns!
