Lacy Fan & V Stitch - Crochet
Updated: Feb 2
This is a super beautiful lace crochet stitch that is actually quite simple. It's very similar to the Fan and V stitch, only lacy! It's light, airy and would absolutely gorgeous as a lightweight cardigan, a shawl or even a light throw. Below you will find the written instructions, as well as a pin to save to your boards and the link to the video tutorial. Enjoy!
