Step #1 – Chain 8
In the 4th chain from the hook (not counting the chain on your hook), work a double crochet. The chain 4 counts as your first double crochet, but it is not part of the v-stitch. It is the end double crochet.
Chain 1, and work another double crochet in the same chain. You’ve now made your first V!
Skip one chain, and work another v-stitch in the next chain – double crochet, chain 1, double crochet.
Skip a chain and work a double crochet in the last chain.
Chain 2, and work v-stitches in the tops of the previous v-stitches.
See how it makes a V?
