The newest entry to the 2-row repeat series is actually an even easier 1-row repeat stitch I call the “V” stitch.

This stitch has an easy one-row repeat, but is great for learning to read your stitches if you are new to crochet. The “V” stitch is stacked on the previous row, so you have to pay attention to where you are putting each stitch.
Non-textured yarn is best for this stitch pattern. It creates a very dense fabric. If you would like more drape, increase your hook size while keeping the weight of the yarn the same.
The pattern would look great as a cowl or scarf. The pattern is completely reversible and looks great unblocked or blocked.
Any weight yarn would work for this pattern, but make sure the yarn does not have too much texture (i.e. no boucle) or you will lose the definition. See some good examples to use that I love below. A self-striping would be very cool to show off the stacked “V”s.
