The Fan and V Stitch is a fairly simple crochet pattern that works over a 4 row repeat. The Fan and V Stitch would look great as a shawl, wrap or even a blanket. I’m so happy to be able to show you step by step how to create this beautiful stitch pattern.

The crochet hook used is my absolute favorite hook. It’s the Furls Odyssey in Turquoise; however, they now have a bunch of colors that I love! The yarn is also lovely! It’s a super soft, inexpensive and absolutely lovely yarn that I just love, as well (Oh, and it rarely splits!). So much so that I became an affiliate with the Furls company and LoveCrafts.
