Have you ever felt so inspired by something? That’s how I feel about nature. It is one of my biggest inspirations! Read more to find out my inspiration for this stitch, and of course learn how to crochet the flying v-stitch!
When you hear “Flying V-Stitch” what does it make you think of? I hope it brings to mind the only v’s that fly—birds! That’s right, this stitch was inspired by the beautiful v formation that migrating birds fly in!
We will use regular v-stitches, along with some front post stitches to create the neat V effect you see in this stitch. 🙂
