V-stitch: The versatile V-stitch can create stitch designs that are open and lacy or tight and compact. To create a V-stitch, work 1 double crochet stitch, chain 1 stitch, and work another double crochet stitch, all for a single stitch. In crochet-speak, you write this process as (Dc, ch 1, dc) in the same stitch. I hope this helps!
