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.
- ch - chain
- dc - double crochet
- dc2tog - double crochet 2 together (aka double crochet decrease)
- Chain an EVEN number of Stitches
Row 1 (Setup Row):
- In the 4th Chain from the hook work the first half of dc2tog.
- Skip 1 ch, and finish dc2tog in the next chain along. Ch1
- Work 1st half of next dc2tog into the SAME ch as previous stitch.
- Skip 1 ch, and finish dc2tog in the next chain along.
- Repeat steps 2-4 until the end of the row.
- DO NOT CH1, work dc into the same ch of the final dc2tog.
Row 2 (Repeat Row):
- Ch2. TURN
- Work half of dc2tog into space between final dc and dc2tog of previous row
- Work second half of dc2tog into next ch1 space from row below. Ch1
- Work 1st half of next dc2tog into the SAME ch1 space as previous stitch.
- Repeat step 3 & 4 until last ch1 gap.
- Work first half of dc2tog into final ch1 gap.
- Work second half of dc2tog between dc2tog and dc from row below.
Repeat Row 2 until your project is complete. If you wish to change colours then please refer to instructions below.
Changing colour is a simple process, you just need to work your finish the final DC of the row with the new colour, and then carry on as normal.
