C2C V Stitch: Crochet Corner to Corner Free Pattern - Made by Gootie (2024)

Last Updated on February 20, 2023

You know how much I love working with different crochet stitches in a corner to corner method.

In my journey of exploring different C2C stitches, I came across the V half double crochet stitch.

Unlike the C2C Wattle stitch or the C2C Cluster stitch, the C2C V stitch creates more airy fabric without having too many holes.

In this tutorial, you will find both a video tutorial and written instructions.

For this corner to corner V stitch pattern, I used the half double crochet V stitch which is [1hdc, ch1, 1hdc] worked in the ch-1 space of the V stitch from the previous row.

The crochet V Stitch can be made using either double crochet or a half double crochet. I decided to use the hdc stitch for this C2C V stitch pattern because I like the V-hdc better.

The V-hdc stitch is less dense than the V-dc, and creates a soft and airy fabric, without being too holey. I have used it also in my Sashay Shawl.

Don’t like counting stitches?

This pattern is part of my 5 Different C2C Crochet Stitches eBook.

The eBook contains easy to follow, step-by-step photo tutorials of unique and different corner to corner stitches.

Working in a corner to corner method is actually very simple, and beginner friendly.

Starting from one corner, you add 3 chains at the beginning of every row and work a v stitch in this chain space the next row. So we are increasing by adding 1 V stitch at the end of each row.

And the same logic is used for the c2c decreasing method, we are decreasing 1 V stitch at the end of every row.

Working back and forth like that creates a reversible fabric!

C2C V Stitch Blanket

The C2C V stitch is a perfect stitch for creating a soft blanket.

For making a blanket I would suggest using at least a DK (#3) weight yarn, or thicker.

The beautiful thing about the C2C crochet method (and why I love it so much), is that you can decide the size and dimensions of your project as you go! You can make it either a square like in the tutorial below or as a rectangle (available in the PDF version).
