The Half Double V Crochet Stitch is a very easy pattern to work! It is also very pretty and looks the same on both sides!

This stitch is a great stitch! The resulting fabric is not to open, neither is it too stiff.

The Half Double V Stitch

The Half Double V Crochet stitch is worked as a one row repeat. It is made up of half double crochet stitches and chain stitches.

Similar to other V stitches, this works up very quickly and is not a big yarn eater.

I would love to hear how you would use this in a project in the comments below! Also do not forget to check out the free video tutorial at the end of the written pattern.

If you enjoy this tutorial, you may want to check out the Even Berry Stitch | How to Crochet tutorial. Be sure to come back next week – a new stitch tutorial is posted every Sunday here and on my YouTube Channel!


For this tutorial I will be using the Caron x Pantone yarn by Yarnspirations along with a 6 mm crochet hook.  The hook shown here and in the video below is a wooden streamline hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

Half Double V Crochet Stitch

This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial.  At the end of each row you will need to chain 1 and turn your work.

Don’t forget to check out the free video tutorial linked below!

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains.  For this stitch pattern you can use any even number of stitches (multiples of 2) for your foundation chain.

For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 20 chain stitches.

Make a foundation chain with any multiple of 2 stitches.

Row One:

Into the fourth chain from your hook, work a half double crochet, chain one, half double crochet all into the same stitch. This is your “V-stitch.” Skip the next chain. Into the next chain, work on v-stitch.

Repeat this all the way across (v-st, sk the next st and repeat) to your final two chains. Skip the next chain and half double crochet in the final stitch.

Repeat all the way across and hdc in the final ch.

Row Two:

Chain one. Half double crochet into the first stitch.

Ch 1, hdc in the 1st st

Skip the next stitch and v-stitch into the next chain one space. Skip the next two stitches and v-stitch into the next chain one space.

V-st in the 1st ch-1 sp

Repeat this all the way across working on v-stitch into each chain one space.

When you come to your final stitch, work one half double crochet into the top of that stitch (for row two only this is the top of your turning chain. All other rows it will be into the top of the final half double crochet.

V-st in each ch-1 sp across and hdc in the final st.

And that’s it!

For the rest of the pattern you are simply going to repeat row two!

At the end, fasten off and weave in your ends.
