Double Strand (V) Stitch Afghan
Using two strands of yarn at the same time.

I find that using two strands of yarn at the same time is just as easy as using one strand. Once the piece gets started it
goes fast and makes a lovely pattern, which will be enjoyed for years to come. I used a (Q) hook for both afghans.

This (V) stitch is very popular and found in numerous magazines and books. I have taken the original stitch and worked it by adding another strand of yarn. The pattern is mine, but you can use colors and themes that match your project.

If you can double crochet, you can work the (V) stitch.

Note; I simply end all of my rows by chaining three stitch before I turn my work.

Make your chain the desired length.
Once the length of your chain has been established, double crochet in the 4th chain from your hook.
Note; the chain three counts as your first stitch.

Double crochet, chain one, double crochet back in that same chain as illustrated. (V) stitch made.
Skip a chain and repeat the pattern.

At the end of your row, CH 3, turn. Work a (V) stitch -
Work your (V) stitches in the center of your (V) from the previous row.
Skip a chain and repeat the pattern.

Multiple: 3 + 1

Double crochet, chain one, work another double crochet back in the same space.
This pattern is fun and works up fast.


These photos represent another afghan I made for my sister and brother-in-law. The afghan is
large and very warm. I used Caron 1 pound yarn for this project.
The colors are peach and green
