The Cluster Crochet Stitch

The Cluster Crochet Stitch is defined by the grouping of stitches into a single space, forming a cluster that stands out against the fabric. This technique allows for the creation of beautifully textured patterns, such as blankets, scarves, cowls, and more.

Using just a one-row repeat, this is an easy stitch to master. So grab your yarn and hook, and let’s make a practice swatch!

Let’s learn how to make the cluster stitch! Scroll down for the step-by-step instructions of this easy crochet stitch.

Step 1: Ch any even number.

Step 2: Working into the second ch from the hook, work one sc in each of the next 2 chs.

Step 5: Work one sc in the next ch.

Step 6: Ch 1.

Step 7: Continue to repeat steps 4-6 until the last ch.

Step 9: (Row 2) Work one dc in the the first st.

Step 10: Locate the ch-1 space from the first row.

Step 11: Insert your hook in that ch-1 sp and pull up a loop.

Step 12: Yo and pull through two loops. Two loops remain.

Step 13: Working into the same ch-1 sp, repeat steps 11-12 three more times (for a total of 4 times) until you have 5 loops on your hook.

Step 14: Yo and pull through all five loops.

Step 15: Ch 1.

Step 16: Repeat steps 10-15 until you have one st left.

Step 17: Work one dc in the very last st. Ch 1, turn.
