The V and Three stitch creates a pretty lace design. It is perfect for both the beginner and more advanced crocheter alike!
The pattern is worked using basic stitches such as your double crochet stitch and chain stitch. These stitches are worked together to create “v stitches” that are then interspersed between groups of three double crochet stitches. They are worked over top of one another creating a simple, yet beautiful, two row repeat.

Materials for this Tutorial:
For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in a single colour. It is a worsted weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm (H/8) birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

The V and Three Crochet Stitch:
Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
Rpt – Repeat
Sc – Single Crochet
Sk – Skip
Sl St – Slip Stitch
V St – V Stitch (Double crochet, chain 1, double crochet all in the same stitch)
Yo – Yarn Over
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial.
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need a multiple of six stitches plus four stitches for your foundation chain (multiples of 6+4).
For example, ch 28.
Sk the 1st dc, * 3 dc in the 2nd dc of the next group of 3 dc, v st in the next ch-1 sp of the next v st; rpt from * across ending with a dc in the top of the starting ch-3. Ch 3, turn.
*V st in the ch-1 sp of the next v st, 3 dc in the 2nd dc of the next group of 3 dc; Rpt from * across ending with a dc in the top of the starting ch-3. Ch 3, turn.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern simply repeat rows 2 and 3. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
