How to Crochet the Raised V-Stitch

I’m excited to introduce the third stitch for May, and the first pattern in the Stitch along using post stitches!

I love the texture of this stitch. The post stitches create a raised v-stitch that looks awesome overall!

If you’re new to post stitches, don’t be scared off! This is a great introduction to them, as there is nothing too fancy involved. 🙂

This stitch is not the first one I’ve shared this year…I am sharing one new stitch per week for the year of 2019! We have a community of people who are “stitching along” together and learning new techniques. If you haven’t joined yet, it’s not too late! The great thing about this is that you can jump in at any time. Be sure to join the Stitch Along community in my Facebook group HERE.

Last thing before we get started on this stitch: If you want to get ahead on the stitches for May, I created a bundle of 4 Spring stitch patterns on Etsy which can be found here. Included is the Raised V-Stitch, plus 3 OTHER lace stitch patterns (all of the ones from May!) The stitches are written out for easy printing. Find this bundle HERE!
