Crochet Chunky Tweeds Blanket
I found this different type of V-Stitch in one of my many crochet stitch books. It creates a V by working the stitches in between the double crochets of the previous row and splitting them about. Most commonly V-stitch is has a chain in between but this way creates a tighter fabric with fewer gaps.
My blanket is nice lap size or would be perfect for someone in a wheelchair. It can be easily adjusted to any size you need by simply chaining an even number and off you go! The Bernat Softee Chunky Tweeds yarn just makes it super quick and the tweeds are beautiful for home decor.
