The V Stitch // Crochet Photo Tutorial

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.
