  1. This is so cute! When you say you use a “V” stitch is that like the cross stitch? I’m a little confused. Thanks!

    1. I pull through the yarn under the hook and not over, with over the hook you’ll get an x. You can do either, it’s just to let you know that my version has been done with the V stitch 🙂

      1. I’m an idiot! *smacks forehead* I don’t know why I was thinking the V stitch was something else! Do you have any videos of your crochet techniques. The stitches look so uniform on the Hello Kitty.
