For this tutorial I’ve changed color every row. When I used this stitch in Section 13 of the Suzie’s Stiped Sampler Blanket CAL, I changed colors every row as well.

Alternating V Stitch Written Instructions with Photos

The Alternating V Stitch is worked over a multiple of 3 plus 1 stitches. For the video and chart in this tutorial I started with a base of 25 single crochet. The stitch pattern begins with row 2. I’ve also included a finishing row to end your swatch with a row of single crochet. The first and last rows of single crochet are simply to neaten up the top and bottom of your swatch if you want to keep it for future reference. I like to staple mine to an index card with the name of the pattern on it.


Row 1 (WS): FSC a multiple of 3+1.
Ch a multiple of 3+2, turn, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across.

Row 2 (RS): Turn, dch2 in first st, skip 2, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next st, [skip 2, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next st] across until 3 sts remain, skip 2, dc in last st. {96 sts}

Row 4: Turn, dch2 in first st, (dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch-1 sp across, dc in last st.
