Blanket Yarn Using V-Stitch Pattern

Well I'm hooked on the blanket yarns!! THEY are SO SOFT and easy to work with and they look so pretty.

SO I went yarn shopping and got a bunch of colors for some projects. I'm so excited with these
All of this is blanket yarn except for the Yellow which is for a Superman
Blanket for a Full Size Bed I'm slowly working on.
So many pretty colors

So the first blanket I finished tonight
This blanket is made using The V-Stitch
The V-stitch right now is to work the double crochet without the chain space in the center of the V. This fabric will have a row of V stitches with one dc stitch on either end of the row. Here's how to do it:
So simple and easy to make
I used 5 large skeins of Blanket Yarn
Start by crocheting a chain of 90 Stitches 
  1. Crochet a foundation chain that is a multiple of 6. In this example, I've crocheted a starting chain of 90
  2. 2 dc in 4th chain from hook. (This is the V-stitch).
  3. *Skip 1, 2 dc in next ch*
  4. Repeat *to* until there are two chains left.
  5. Sk 1, dc in last ch. This completes your first row of V-stitches bordered by 1 dc on either end of the row.
  6. Now you're ready to start your next row, so turn the work and ch 3 for you first dc of the new row.
  7. Skip 2, 2 dc in the space between the two dc that make the V from the row below.
  8. Repeat across the V-stitches of the row below.
  9. Skip 1, dc in last ch.
  10. Repeat until the project is the length you desire. Finish off and weave in ends.
That's easy and fun to do and this makes up quick and looks pretty you can make so many color combinations.
