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!

I may be late on this..but I believe a V stitch is a dc, c, dc in same stitch.

can someone help me. Is the chain 3 at the end of the row count as the double crochet Thanks

The chain three does not count as the double crochet at the end of the row. You double crochet, then chain three and turn and then put three double crochets in the V- stitch and continue as directed.
