This week I have made a new discovery
and am delighted to share it with you!
extremely fast growing
over on Instagram there is a wave sweeping the nation
and one by one all my hooky friends have been making v stitch blankets
so eventually I caught the bug
and dived into my Stylecraft Special DK stash
coming out with this gorgeous range of autumn colours
It is an amazingly fast growing blanket
so simple to hook
and totally addictive
at the end
I sew each end into its own coloured stripe using a darning needle
thinking of it as embroidery
to obtain a neat professional finish
in UK terms
To complete the blanket make a simple edging.
1 rounds of dc (UK)
followed by a 2nd round of
dc 3 chain dc in the same stitch miss a stitch repeat
these baby blankets are such quick fun
I have made 2 and started a 3rd in 1 week!
If you Google Vstitch you will find many free patterns
and there is plenty available on Pinterest Ravelry and You Tube
but basically you need a starting chain in muliples of 3 +2 +2
you start with a treble (UK) in the 5th chain stitch from the hook
and make 1 treble 1 chain 1 treble for the first v all in the same stitch
miss 2 chain and repeat
at the end miss 1 chain and end with 1 treble
the rest is easy
just make 1 v stitch in each previous v
and a single treble at the start and end of each row
go on you know you want to ...
join the v stitch party!
