Basic Crochet V Stitch


In its most basic form, a v stitch is usually just a double crochet stitch, followed by a chain stitch, then another double crochet stitch, all of which are crocheted into the same stitch or space. There are zillions of possible stitch patterns you could construct using the basic v stitch. One of them is pictured below.
