This Cluster stitch is a very well known stitch and is so easy and so beautiful. What I love the most is that you can play with a lot of colors and will look even better. Even so, now I am working on a garment using this stitch in one single color and I love it too.
I know there are a lot of tutorials with this stitch, but the idea of the Crochet Library on this blog is to put together the stitches I am working with on my patterns.
If you didn’t saw this stitch before, here is how you can do it.
You can use for this stitch any type of yarn you want. In this tutorial I used a fingering cotton yarn, just to see how it works. The result is beautiful.
Abbreviations used in this pattern:
- Ch – chain
- Sc – Single Crochet
- Dc – Double crochet
- St (s) – Stitch (es)
Cluster: a group of 3 partial double crochet together
Yarn over, insert the hook in the st, Yarn over pull out a loop, yarn over, pull the yarn trough the first 2 loops. Repeat 2 more times. After 3 partial dc made in the same space you will have 4 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull the yarn trough all 4 loops on your hook. The cluster stitch is done.
To begin ch an even number of stitches.
Ch 1, 1 sc in the second stitch, 1 sc in the next, *ch 1, skip 1 st, 1 sc. Repeat from the * to the end of the row ending with ch 1 and 2 sc in the last 2 st(s).
Ch 2, 1 dc in the first st, *ch 1, skip the next sc, 1 cluster in the next ch 1 space. Repeat from * to the end of the row, ending with 1 cluster in the last ch 1 space, ch 1, 1 dc in the last stitch.
Ch 1, 1 sc in the first st, 1 sc in the next ch 1 space, *ch 1, skip the next cluster, 1 sc in the next ch 1 space. Repeat from * to the end of the row, ending with ch 1, 1 sc in the last ch 1 space, 1 sc in the last st.
Now, just repeat rows 2 and 3 as long as you want.
You can work with one color or more. You can play with the colors as you wish, changing the colors on each cluster row, or kipping the clusters in one single color and change the colors on the sc rows.
I just love it.
