Variations

There are many ways to create V-stitches; just have to adjust the beginning foundation chain accordingly…

No-Space V-Stitch

No CH-1 between the DCs – creates a denser piece. Has only 1 stitch on each end as border.

  • CH up multiples of 6
  • 2 DC in 4th CH from hook
  • Repeat *Skip 1, (2 DC)* till 2 CH left
  • Skip 1, DC in last CH
    PATTERN REPEAT
  • CH 3,
  • Repeat *(2 DC) between DC of V-stitch*
  • DC in last stitch
HDC V-Stitch

Exactly like DC V-Stitch in a different stitch. Slightly less dense than the No-Space V-Stitch. Has 2 stitches on each side as border.

  • CH up multiples of 3 (+6)
  • HDC in 3rd CH from hook, CH 1, skip 1
  • Repeat *(HDC, CH 1, HDC), Skip 2* till 4 CH left
  • CH 1, HDC in last 2 CHs
    PATTERN REPEAT
  • CH 2, HDC, CH 1,
  • Repeat *(HDC, CH 1, HDC) in each v-stitch*
  • CH 1, HDC in last 2 stitches
TRC V-Stitch

Exactly like DC V-Stitch in a different stitch. Hole-ly and lacey. Has 2 stitches on each side as border.

  • CH up multiples of 3 (+8)
  • TRC in 5th CH from hook, CH 1, skip 1
  • Repeat *(TRC, CH 1, TRC), Skip 2* till 4 CH left
  • CH 1, TRC in last 2 CHs
    PATTERN REPEAT
  • CH 4, TRC, CH 1,
  • Repeat *(TRC, CH 1, TRC) in each v-stitch*
  • CH 1, TRC in last 2 stitches

Pattern can be replicated further for taller stitches, increase the number of chains after the multiples of 3 for foundation chain.
