Double Crochet V Baby Blankets

A few months ago I found out that four people I know are having babies in June. I wanted to crochet each new baby something, but do not have a lot of time. Those quick blankets that are made with soft bulky yarn and a large crochet hook, look so cuddly soft, just perfect for a baby. Deramores has a great new chunky yarn that is really soft and is suppose to be anti-pilling,so I decided to give this new yarn a try. As soon as the yarn came in the post, I grabbed my largest crochet hook and began to try out different stitches. The blanket pattern needed to be a quick and simple, so only two basic stitches were used, the single crochet and the double crochet.

The Double Crochet V Baby Blanket

The double crochet V pattern was used for the main body of the blanket and a chain one single crochet pattern was used for the edging. 

This is what the double crochet V pattern looks like up close, the bulky yarn and large crochet hook really make the pattern stand out.

The double crochet V (not to be confused with the V Stitch) is very similar to the "V" stitch except you do not ch1 in between each double crochet stitch, the pattern is done with only double crochet stitches, which gives the blankets an old fashion look.

The instructions and tutorial can be found here

Have a great week
Crochet on,
