V-Stitch Afghan

This afghan is a very simple one that I started while trying to use up some of the Lion Brand Homespun yarn that I had left over after another project… Well… I wound up buying more yarn (very lucky they still had the same dye lot!)  and now still have yarn in the left over box…grin This is what I used:

Lion Brand Homespun    Aran   approx. 4 skeins

Lion Brand Homespun    Rococco  approx. 4 skeins

Crochet Hook  size I

This is the V-stitch pattern that can be used to make many things:  the thread size and needle size will determine the size of the finished project.  Using small thread (ie: Cebelia or #10 cotton) will make lovely doilies that can be edged with a shell border or any border you like.

Ch 3 at beginning and end of each row counts as first dc throughout this pattern.

Chain 109 stitches.

Row 1:  Dc in 4th ch from hook, skip next ch, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next chain [first V-Stitch made. This is the V-Stitch used throughout this pattern], *(skip 2 ch, V-stitch in next ch)* Continue in the skip 2 ch, V-stitch in next ch pattern across length of chain ending with V-stitch in 3rd to last chain stitch.  Skip next ch st, dc in last ch st.  Ch 3, turn.

Row 2: V-stitch in ch 2 space of each V-stitch across, dc in top of beginning ch3 st, ch3, turn.

Row 3: V-stitch in ch2 sp of each V-stitch across, dc in top of ch3, ch3 and turn.

Repeat in pattern until desired length.

My afghan is 45″ x 92″  You can make your color changes as often as you like or make it all one color if you prefer single color afghans. As I said, this is a very simple pattern and easily adaptable for whatever project you might like to do.

    Very pretty afghan. I love using the V-stitch pattern. works up lovely and is very adaptable. Homespun yarn is nice, but somewhat difficult to use. I find it hard to see the stitches. Maybe my eyes are just going bad…lol, but perhaps I’ll try this pattern with a larger crochet hook than what you used. Although the yarn is expensive and makes for a pricey afghan, would make a wonderful gift.

    Thanks so much, Redd. I’m glad you like the afghan. And, yes, it does make a wonderful gift.

    Unless I missed it, Redd, there isn’t a border! I have been searching for hours for just ONE V-Stitch Afghan with a border. I MUST say, your afghan is the prettiest that I’ve seen!

    If you have a border that you have laying around…e-mail it to me. I don’t care what it would cost…!

    Thanx much!

  5. I’ve learn several just right stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how much attempt you put to create any such excellent informative website.
