How to Crochet the hdc V Stitch (Mini V Stitch)

The hdc V stitch is a simple crochet stitch and a great stitch to learn if you are a beginner crocheter and looking to expand your crochet stitches.

The half double crochet V stitch is also called the Mini V Stitch since it’s a smaller version of the classic double crochet V stitch.

Crocheting the hdc V stitch is very easy, the stitch is a combination of [1hdc, ch1, 1hdc] when all are worked into the ch-1 space of the hdc V stitch of the previous row.

And if you are a fan of the corner to corner method (like me), you can also work the hdc v stitch from corner to corner!
