Many vintage and contemporary crochet patterns make use of V stitches. There are bunches of different ways you could vary a V stitch to get different results. This introductory video shows you one possible way of approaching the V stitch.
In the video, Yvonne first demonstrates what a basic v stitch looks like. Then she incorporates basic vs into a stitch pattern that alternates with double crochet stitches.

Yvonne shows you how to crochet a cluster stitch. Crocheters often combine cluster stitches with shells or other stitches; there are many ways to use them.
Lucille demonstrates this complex, heavily textured crochet stitch that resembles crocodile scales. You'd better put on your "thinking caps" for this one, folks; it isn't the easiest stitch to wrap your head around, but the results sure are interesting.
If you haven't learned how to switch colors yet, it's time to unleash some color into your crochet world! Yvonne shows you exactly how to do it.
