Offset V Sitch | Free Crochet Stitch Tutorial | The Unraveled Mitten

Did you know March is National Crochet Month? Last year at this time I was just a few weeks into this wonderful blogging journey when I decided the perfect way to celebrate a month of crochet would be to learn some new crochet stitches and share them with you.

So that’s what I did. Those 5 original crochet stitch tutorials are still some of my most popular posts. You can find them and a few other great tutorials HERE. I have decided to do the same thing again this year!

Every Friday this month I will be releasing a new step by step crochet stitch tutorial for you. Sound fun? I’m pretty excited about it because I love learning new stitches. It is such a great way for us crocheters to build up and advance our skills.

Enter you email below to sign up for my newsletter so you don’t miss any of the fun stitches I have planned!

Today I am going to show you how to crochet the Offset V-Stitch. It is a lot like the traditional v-stitch, but you place your v’s into a stitch rather than the chain 1 from the V below. This versatile stitch creates a lacy fabric great for almost any project.

The offset v-stitch also looks great in stripes! I made a swatch so you could see what it looks like in a solid color, 2 row stripes, and 1 row stripes (please ignore my ends haha). If you decide to crochet it in the 2 row stripes it is easy to carry your yarn up the side so you have less ends to weave in.

  1. Hi! Just found your blog page on the Offset V Stitch by way of Pinterest. I’ve been looking for a crochet stitch that resembles the knitting stitch used in the “Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks” scarf pattern because, to me anyway, that knitting stitch looks like ducks in flight! 🙂
    So far, your Offset V Stitch is the closest I’ve seen to a crochet stitch that looks a little bit like flying ducks (w imagination, lol) — at least in the Caron lilac yarn sample. But when I got to this page, the Bernat rose and pink sample looks like plain old v’s to me. Do these samples look different to you? Just wondering.

    And if you or anyone else can come up with a crochet stitch that more closely resembles the knitting stitch described above (see pattern on, I’d sure be interested!

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      1. Thank you! I’ve looked into the star stitch, but will check out the trinity.

        Beautiful stitching here w the offset spike, regardless! 🙂
