The V Stitch Crochet Tutorial is an amazing detailed step by step tutorial for the classic v-stitch. 

This crochet stitch is a great beginner friendly lace stitch combination, using only basic crochet stitches such as chains and double crochet stitches. The stitch combination creates a beautiful v-stitch pattern, where the stitches creates a v shape.

The V stitch crochet is great for patterns where you want simple eyelets, a lacy fabric and good grape, such as some garments, for the home crochet patterns, summer afghans, scarves, simple lace shawls, baby blankets and more.

Another great thing about the V-stitch is the that it works up quickly and you will easily find the flow while crocheting it. 

The V stitch crochet can be made in different variations, like substituting the double crochet stitches (dc) for treble crochet ( tr ) stitches or creating the V with two double crochets on each side.

However on this tutorial, I’ll teach you how to crochet the classic V stitch.
