I asked a while ago whether people find it easier to learn to crochet from video tutorials or just photos and was overwhelmed with the response! It turns out you guys really like videos (but some of you also like photos so don’t worry, I’ll keep going with those too). So I’ve put together a little video teaching you how to crochet the V stitch to accompany my free blanket pattern that you can find here.

This is such a great to learn and is perfect for so many projects – blankets, scarves, garments, bags, just about anything you like really.
