How to Crochet the V Stitch

This version of V-Stitch is marginally different to a lot of the other methods I've seen available. By working the V Stitch as a dc2togs, you get a lovely dense fabric that just looks a little more tidy than using the more common V Stitch method you often see. It is still incredibly easy to work, and despite having lots of ends to deal with looks fantastic when worked in single rows of colour.

    Hi! Your pattern is so easy to understand. Just finished a receiving blanket. I edges are perfect but I would love to add a border. I saw on your website a handmade blanket you had sold that had a white border. Do you have instructions somewhere how to do it? Even a paid pattern?
    Thank you for the pattern!

      I think if I remember correctly I used the border that I generally also use on a ripple blanket - I have a tutorial and pattern for that here on the website and on youtube
