The Wide V Stitch is a wonderful crochet stitch pattern that has a similar feel to the granny stitch. I love it!
That being said, it is slightly more complicated than a granny stitch. Also while the fabric is quite robust, the stitches themselves are lighter than those of a granny stitch. I could see this stitch being used in a variety of projects! While I work it in rows here and in the video tutorial below, it could easily be adapted to be worked in a round.

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!
Thank you so much for stopping by! If you enjoy the tutorial below, be sure to also check out some of the many other crochet stitch tutorials on my site, such as the Meadows Stitch | How to Crochet and pin this one for later!
