This v-stitch blanket crochet pattern uses the half double and double crochet v-stitch. I like the look of that variation, but you can just as easy stick with one or the other.
Three colors is what seemed to work well with this pattern. I used an aran for the half double crochet v-stitches, and then a green and purple for the rows worked in the double crochet v-stitch.
