    Beach or Pool cover up

    Finally finished this pool cover up. Made it with #3 yarn and a " H" crochet hook.
    I used the crochet "V-Stitch and the inverted V- stitch it looks lacy.

    I didn't have a pattern to use so I just made some measurements of width and the length I wanted and used those numbers. I had enough yarn to make two little cap sleeves for a finished look.

    Hi Spoula,
    It looks nice. Is #3 yarn the same as fingering yarn? You mentioned inverted v stitches before but I'm not familiar with that. What is an inverted v stitch? I get the fact that's it an inverted or upside down v but how do you crochet it?

    Hi Jean Marie, Thank you for the nice compliment. Yes #3 yarn is a fingerling yarn.

    You know how to do the "V" stitch (DC, ch 1, dC in same stitch)
    this would be Row 1;
    Row 2 you would do the Inverted V' Stitch these stitches are worked on the row 1 V stitch.
    You start by a YO insert your hook in the first DC of the previous row 1, pull through 2 loops on your hook hold the other 2 loops on you hook and yo then insert your hook in the other dc and complete your DC, then chain 2 and repeat this row by doing the inverted V stitch in each of the previous row of regular V stitch.
    I hope this makes sense.

    I found this video for you but it is not the way I did my inverted stitch or described the way I did mind but it is a good video to help you see how it is done.

    I understand your directions. Thank you. The video you posted is a inverted Y stitch, not a inverted V stitch but that would be interesting too.

    Hi, Yes, I know the lady in the video was calling it a Y stitch but it was the only one I could find looking like my inverted V stitch. They look very much alike and made similiar I just though she was calling it a Y because that is what it looked like to her silly me.

    I'm glad you understood my instructions I think you would like those stitches together they are pretty.
