The half double v stitch is a lovely stitch that works up quickly and easily.
It is similar to the spider stitch, but is a little more dense and the stitch pattern is easier to see.
The half double v is worked in half double stitches, of course! Plus, we throw in some chains to give us the little repeating clusters.
This one will give a little more drape than a regular half double fabric and the stitch definition give it some texture and flair.
So, let’s get started learning how to crochet the half double v stitch.
