The Textured V Stitch pattern is a fun (but easy!) stitch pattern that uses front post stitches to create a raised “v” effect.
This stitch pattern is featured in the Harmony Throw Blanket CrochetAlong, hosted by Made by Gootie and The Loophole Fox.
The blanket pattern is a collaboration between 12 different crochet designers, each of whom has contributed a unique stitch pattern to create a cosy blanket, full of texture!
Here is the finished blanket – isn’t is absolutely stunning!?
All about the Harmony Throw Blanket Crochet-Along

About Part 6: Textured V Stitch
If you haven’t tried Front Post double treble crochet (FPdtr) stitches before, then this little pattern is a great one to get some practice in.
Stitch markers will be your best friend for this pattern. Once you have worked the first row, you can mark the stitches into which you will work the front post stitches (which you will work in Row 3). This will make your life so much easier – promise!

For this pattern, you can follow the written instructions here, or use the stitch chart in the print-friendly PDF.

Continuing on from the transition rows just worked…
Row 1 (RS): Ch 1 (does not count as a st, here and throughout), hdc in each st across, turn. 
Note: Before turning for Row 2, you may find it helpful to place markers around the post of every 8th st in Row 1 (with the exception of the last st). This should make Row 3 a little easier as the markers will indicate where to place the FPdtr sts.
Row 2 (WS): Repeat Row 1.
Row 3: Ch 1, hdc in each of first 5 sts, sk next 2 hdc, FPdtr in next hdc 2 rows below, sk hdc behind FPdtr just made, *hdc in each of next 4 hdc, FPdtr in hdc 2 rows below immediately to the left of last FPdtr made, sk hdc behind FPdtr just made, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sk next 2 hdc, FPdtr in next hdc 2 rows below, sk hdc behind FPdtr just made; repeat from * until 10 sts rem, hdc in each of next 4 hdc; FPdtr in hdc 2 rows below immediately to the left of last FPdtr made, sk hdc behind FPdtr just made, hdc in each of 5 rem sts, turn.
Row 4: Repeat Row 1.
