The Flying V Crochet Stitch pattern creates a solid fabric with a subtle texture that is created with diagonal spike stitches.
This design is so easy to work! The most challenging part of the Flying V Stitch is making sure that when you draw up the loop for the spiked single crochet stitch, you draw it up to the height of the single crochet stitch in the row that you are working on. This will ensure that the fabric does not bunch and that your V’s will lay flat. Alternatively, you will not want to pull the loop up too tall as it will also not lay flat against your fabric. It may take a few attempts to get your tension right, but it is worth it!
As the fabric is the same on both sides and it is not too bulky, this stitch would work well in any reversible project in a light weight or bulky weight yarn.

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in one colour. It is a worsted weight, 100% cotton yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose, even experiment with stripes of colour!
