ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch sc = single crochet dc = double crochet
v sp = v space
sk = skip
* = pattern repeat
Pattern: The multiple for this pattern is 7 + 5. E.g. if you want to have 20 V’s going across your pattern, multiply 20 by 7 and then add 5, this will give you the number of chains required to do this. (7 makes up 4dc and one V. The 5 makes up the 4dc at the beginning of the row and the ch1 used as a step up for the first dc)
