Crochet V Stitch in Brick Repeat

Learn a New Crochet Stitch: This Stitch Is a Variation of the Popular Crochet V Stitch, and It Also Has Similarities to the Beloved Granny Stitch Pattern.

Stitch Description: This stitch is sort of a hybrid between the V-stitch and the granny square. It’s worked in rows, like a V-stitch usually would be. The difference is that, instead of building V-stitches on top of each other, they are alternated in a brick repeat.

Supplies You Need for Crocheting the V-Stitch in Brick Repeat

Yarn: You can crochet this stitch with any yarn you like.

Pictured here, you see a cream-colored swatch, a brown swatch and a black / multicolored swatch.

I crocheted the cream colored swatch with Lily Sugar ‘n Cream worsted weight cotton yarn and a size G crochet hook. I crocheted the starting chain using a size H hook.

I worked the brown swatch with a direct-from-the-farm wool yarn that is constructed similarly to Tekapo yarn. It is a semi-worsted weight. I crocheted the sample swatch with a size G crochet hook.

I crocheted the black / multicolored swatch with Lion Brand Fancy Fur eyelash yarn in the color known as “Stained Glass Black”. This is a super bulky weight yarn. The swatch was worked using a size P crochet hook (11.50 mm.)

How to Crochet a Swatch of This Stitch

V Stitch Definition

For the purposes of this tutorial, let’s define a V stitch in the following way: Work one double crochet stitch, one chain stitch, and one more double crochet stitch. In row 1, all 3 of these stitches will be worked in the same chain. In rows 2 and up, they will all be worked in the same space.

Note that there are quite a few variations of the V stitch, so you might encounter other patterns that define a V stitch differently.

How to Crochet the V-Stitch in Brick Repeat:

Ch 33

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, (ch 1, skip next 3 chs, work a V stitch in 4th chain from hook.) Repeat sequence inside parentheses 5 more times. Ch 1, skip next 3 chs, work 1 dc in each of the last 2 sts.

Row 2: ch 2, turn. Dc in next dc, ch 3, skip 1st chain and 1st V stitch, (work a V stitch in the next space between V stitches, ch 1.) Repeat sequence inside parentheses 3 more times. Work one more V stitch, ch 3, skip next V stitch, work 1 dc in next dc, work 1 dc in turning chain of previous row.

Row 3: ch 2, turn. Dc in next dc, ch 1, work V stitch in next space, (ch 1, work V stitch in the next space between the V stitches that you worked in the previous row.) Repeat the sequence inside the parentheses 4 more times. Ch 1, dc in next dc, dc in turning chain.

Rows 4 and up: Repeat rows 2 and 3 again as many times as necessary to make the swatch as large as you want it to be.

End off and weave in your loose ends. Block if desired.

To Make a Different Sized Swatch or Project

The starting chain will be a multiple of 4 + 9. In other words, you will need to start out with a number of chains that can be divided by 4; then take that number and add 9 more chains to it. This ensures that you will also have enough chains to use for crocheting the dc stitches at the beginning and end of each row.
