Sue's version of V' st
I like to do my own version, the ch st, between the dc isn't necessary and you get a firmer fabric, that gives a lovely soft but very square and neat edged fabric.

ROW 1: sc in first st, ch2, miss 2 sts, sc in next st, rpull yarn through st, and holdepeat the miss 2 sts and sc in next to end, finish with a sc in last st. [23 x ch2 loops]
ROW 2: ch2 counts as first dc, 2dc into first loop, 3dc, in every loop to end, pull yarn through st and hold. [23 blocks of 3dc]
ROW 3 -27: Repeat  Rows 1 and 2, Finish with ch2, loops.
