C2C V Stitch: Free Corner to Corner Crochet Pattern

Last Updated on June 4, 2024

You know how much I love working with different corner to corner crochet stitches.

In my journey of exploring different C2C stitches, I came across the V half double crochet stitch.

Unlike the C2C Wattle stitch or the C2C Cluster stitch, the C2C V stitch creates more airy fabric without having too many holes.

In this tutorial, you will find both a video tutorial and written instructions.

How to Crochet the Half Double Crochet V Stitch

For this corner to corner V stitch pattern, I used the half-double crochet V stitch which is [1hdc, ch1, 1hdc] worked in the same ch-1 space of the V stitch from the previous row. 

The crochet V Stitch can be made using either double crochet or a half double crochet. I decided to use the hdc stitch for this C2C V stitch pattern because I like the V-hdc better.

The V-hdc stitch is less dense than the V-dc, and creates a soft and airy fabric, without being too holey. I have used it also in my Sashay Shawl.

Crocheting the C2C V Stitch

Working in a corner to corner method is very simple, and beginner-friendly, and there are many c2c stitch variations.

Starting from one corner, you add 3 chains at the beginning of every row and work a v stitch in this chain space that creates the next row to increase. So we are increasing by adding 1 V stitch at the end of each row.

And the same logic is used for the c2c decreasing method, we are decreasing 1 V stitch at the end of every row. 

Working back and forth like that creates a reversible fabric!

C2C Decrease

When you reach the desired length, start decreasing:
** Place the stitch marker at the beginning of each ch2 so you can easily find it for the decrease stitch.

Row 5: ch2-PM, skip 1st hdc, 1hdc in next ch-1.
* Skip next 2 hdc, V-hdc in next ch-1; repeat from * to last V-hdc, hdc2tog in last ch-1 & ch-3, turn.

Row 6:
ch2-PM, skip next hdc2tog & hdc, V-hdc in next ch-1.
* Skip next 2 hdc, V-hdc in next ch-1; repeat from * to last V-hdc, hdc2tog in last ch-1 & ch-2, turn.

Continue working row 6 until you have only one V-hdc stitch in your row (total of 4 sts + ch2).

Row 7: ch1, skip next hdc2tog & hdc, ss in next ch-1.
Fasten off, soak and block if needed.



C2C V Stitch Blanket

The C2C V stitch is a perfect stitch for creating a soft blanket.

For making a blanket I would suggest using at least a DK (#3) weight yarn, or thicker.

The beautiful thing about the C2C crochet method (and why I love it so much), is that you can decide the size and dimensions of your project as you go! You can make it either a square like in the tutorial below or as a rectangle (available in the PDF version).

    1. Hi Frances,
      I don’t know why, but you can get the printable PDF version.

  2. New dish cloth making today. Thank you for this pattern tutorial. 🙂

    1. You’re welcome! I would love to see it when it’s done!

  3. I can’t get the decrease, I’ve pulled it apart 3x and #4 is looking wrong could you please give me some help.

    1. Hi Donna,
      I’m really sorry you’re having a hard time with decreasing the C2C V stitch.
      I can’t really help without seeing a photo (you are welcome to email me a close up of your decrease part and I’ll do my best to find the problem).
      Are you using stitch markers to help find the ch-2 space?
      Also, another way to make sure you are decreasing correctly is to count your V stitches [1hdc, ch1, 1hdc]. Every decrease row has 2 less V stitches to it.
      I hope it helps!

    2. Hi, just an update that a video tutorial has been added to the post.
      Hope it will be helpful for the decreasing!

    3. I’ve pulled my drcrease side 3 times now. Finally found the video and watched it. I believe the pattern is written wrong. In the video, she says to Hdc2tg, ch2, then continue with v hdc until the next hdc2tg. The pattern says to start with one hdc then continues to v hdc again and adds an extra 2 ch at the end again before ch2 and turn

      1. Hi Jennifer, I’m sorry you are having trouble with the decrease part.
        I’m glad you found my video, and hope it will be helpful for you!
        Although, the written pattern is not wrong, it was fully tested and I am working my square in the video according to my written pattern.
        In the first row of the decrease part (row 5), you work 1 hdc in the first ch-1 instead of a V-hdc, to create the corner, then continue working regularly and work hdc2tog in the last ch-1&ch-2.
        And in the second row of the decrease (row 6, which you will be repeating), you skip the first hdc2tog and 1hdc, then continue working regularly until the last V-hdc and then work hdc2tog into the ch-1&ch-2.

        I recommend using stitch markers, especially in the decrease part, it helps identify better the ch-2 sp.
        I hope this explanation and the video will help you with the decreasing!
