How to Crochet the Fir Stitch (aka V-Stitch)

Are you ready for the first stitch for March? I don’t know about you, but I can hardly believe we’re already on the third month of the Stitch Along—three months into 2019!

The fir stitch is a SUPER easy stitch. Trust me. It uses only double crochet and chains.

Have you heard about my Stitch Along? For the year of 2019, I’m publishing 4 new themed crochet stitches each month! We are all stitching along together to learn new crochet stitches.

To view the master list of stitches that have been released so far, click HERE! To view last week’s stitch, the Rose Petal Stitch, click here.

To join the Stitch Along community, be sure and join my Facebook group here! Its so much fun to share pictures and help each other out there. 🙂

Want to put this stitch to PRACTICAL USE? I also designed a versatile market bag which allows you to practice this stitch, plus 2 other stitches from March! View the March Market Bag Pattern HERE!

Last thing before we get started on this stitch: I created a bundle of 4 Spring stitch patterns on Etsy which can be found here. Included is the Fir Stitch, plus 3 OTHER lace stitch patterns (all of the ones from March!!) All the stitches are written out for easy printing. Find this bundle HERE!

  • Stitch pattern is a multiple of 3+1

You can potentially use any yarn and hook for this stitch. However, here is what I used:


1/ Niagara Cardigan 2/ Heart Stitch 3/ Winter Blossom Scarf

Fsc a multiple of 3+1 (to start with a chain stitch, you will need a multiple of 3 + 2, and then a row of single crochet).

Row 1: Ch 3, dc in next fsc. Sk 1 fsc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next fsc. *Sk 2 fsc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next fsc. Rep from * until 3 fsc left. Sk next fsc, dc in last 2 fsc. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 3, dc in next dc. *(Dc, ch 2, dc) in next ch-2 space. Rep from * across all ch-2 spaces. Dc in last 2 dc. Turn.

Rep row 2 for stitch pattern!
