My latest crochet pattern is inspired by a field of wildflowers popping up in the Spring. This scene is possibly my favorite landscape — all of those bright & happy colors! I love watching it sprout in the Blossom Wall Hanging. Therefore, the V Stitch is used to create the perception of tall stems of wildflowers in the midst of growing grass. It is a simple repeat, and a variation of the Double Crochet Stitch.
Let’s dive in to learn how to make the V Stitch!
First, start with an even number chain.
Begin with a Double Crochet (DC) in the 4th Chain (CH) from the hook. CH 1.
Next, yarn over (YO) and insert hook into the same stitch. YO, and pull through ST. There will be 3 loops on the hook.
YO and pull through 2 loops.
Skip next CH. YO and insert hook into the next CH. YO and pull up loop. There will be 4 loops on the hook.
YO and pull through 2 loops on the hook. YO and pull through the last 3 loops on the hook.
Now, keep repeating this pattern until the end of the row. Then you will have a row that looks like the picture below.
