The Stacked Vs crochet stitch pattern uses on overlay crochet technique to make an intriguing textured stitch without using post stitches.
This stitch pattern is so cool! I love the texture and the long stitches. You can add more stitches in between the stacked Vs to give it another look. The texture makes it so it will still be awesome in a single color. For this tutorial I’ve changed color every row. When I used this stitch in Section 6 of the Suzie’s Stiped Sampler Blanket CAL, I changed colors every other row.

Stacked Vs Stitch Written Instructions with Photos
The Stacked Vs Stitch is worked over a multiple of 6+1. For the video and chart in this tutorial I started with a base of 19 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 6+1.
Ch a multiple of 6+2, turn, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across.
Row 2 (RS): Ch 1, turn, sc in each of first 3 sts, [ch 1, skip 1, sc in each of next 5 sts] until 4 sts remain, ch 1, skip 1, sc in each of last 3 sts.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in first st and in each sc and ch-1 sp across.
Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc in each of first 3 sts, [ch 1, skip 1, sc in each of next 5 sts] until 4 sts remain, ch 1, skip 1, sc in each of last 3 sts.
