My sister is having a baby this August (yay!) So I’ve decided to learn how to crochet so I can make something special for our future bundle of joy. I want it to be something special – something that looks a little more fancy than your basic crochet project. After doing some research, I’ve found that the V-stitch is just the ticket for making your projects look nice without being too difficult.
If you can create chains and double crochets, you can do the V-stitch. Follow this easy tutorial to find out how. I’ll wait here….
Think you’ve got it? Great!
Now that you know how to make a V-stitch, look below for 29 simple crochet patterns that you can make using this technique. The Vanilla Bean Scarf looks to me like a great place to start!
