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.

Be aware that this video moves along quickly, and there's an edit that might go right over your head if you aren't paying careful attention. So, put on your "thinking cap" before you view the video, and when you're finished watching, be sure to click the back button to return here for more v stitch tutorials.

In almost every crochet pattern I write, I finish by instructing you to "weave in your ends." If you have no idea what that means, this video will explain it to you.

Even if you're an experienced crocheter, you may learn something by watching the video. For example, Yvonne's supply list for this task includes a needle threader; does yours? (Mine doesn't, but maybe it should.) Pretty clever, don't you think?
