And if this is the first you’ve heard of the 2014 Moogly Afghan Crochet-a-Long, then don’t worry, I’m not crazy… mostly… just start HERE to read how it works!

BLOCK #15: I Love the V Stitch by Dayna Audirsch
(Click the name of the pattern above to go to the Ravelry link for this pattern)
UPDATE!! The site seems to be down – hopefully temporarily. In the meantime, please go to https://web.archive.org/web/20131013142004/http://dayna.tdgservices.com/ShowPattern.aspx?PatternID=42 to get the pattern.
Above is the original, made with 2 colors. Just a tiny photo, sorry! Check the Ravelry page linked above, for more pics. And here’s the one I made, using my 4 colors (unblocked):
- Be sure to read the designer’s Special Stitches descriptions – the stitches are simple, but there are different V sts out there and you want to make sure to use the right ones!
- The pattern itself is very easy and well written. One point to clarify though is on Round 10 – the “sps” are between the V sts. It’ll make sense once you’re there.
- After 10 rounds I was at 11″, so I worked Round 11 in hdc instead of sc, but otherwise as written. Be sure to take your own measurements!
- My color changes were as follows: Round 1-3 Red; Round 4 Blue; Round 5-6 Green; Round 7-9 White; Round 10 Blue; and Round 11 Green.
