The lacy double v-stitch is a bit of an open stitch, which makes it perfect for summer items. However, it can be used to make just about anything and for any season.
The stitch is quick and easy to make, and once you get past the first 2 rows you’ll have it memorized for mindless crochet! And what is better than that?
To get started, ch any multiple of 7 + 2 for the width.
