The double v stitch is an easy stitch to learn because it is just double crochet stitches arranged in a particular order and placement.
So, this is a great stitch for beginners to use once you have learned the double crochet stitch.
The double v works up pretty quickly since it is tall and spaced out a bit. So this is a great one to add to projects to give it a little variety.

Double V Stitch: Work 2 dc stitches into the space between the 2 dc stitches in the row below. This pushes the dc to the side to make a v shape.
Row 1: Work 2 dc in the 4th ch from hook, *skip 2 ch, work 2 dc in next ch; repeat from * to end of row to the last 2 ch, skip one ch and work 1 dc in the last ch, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, *work 2 dc between the 2dc in the row below; repeat from * across the row to the end, work 1 dc into the turning ch, turn.
Row 3+: Repeat Row 2.
- Be sure to work between the two double crochet stitches to really push them apart to make the V shape.
