I’m deep in the midst of creating my first shawl and it’s full of fabulous stitches so I’ve created a series of tutorials to accompany it, like last week’s post on the Front Post Double Crochet Stitch. This week is the cluster stitch. I’ve paired the photo tutorial with a quick video, if that’s more you’re learning style. Plus you’re getting a sneak peek of my shawl with the cluster stitch in action above!
If you love learning to crochet through videos (like me!) then be sure to subscribe to my channel so I can keep creating new crochet videos.
Be sure to check out my Ottobre Shawlette crochet pattern. I use the double crochet cluster stitch in this shawl pattern.
This is one of my favorite crochet shawl patterns. The variety of stitches is so fun to work up. I’ve included photo and/video support for most of the stitches too.
This is my starting swatch. You will crochet into the next three stitches to create the cluster stitch.
First yarn over and insert your hook into the next stitch you will work.
Then yarn over again and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook (2 loops left on your hook, as pictured above).
Next yarn over and insert your hook into the second stitch you will work.
Then yarn over again pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook (3 loops left on hook, as pictured).
Now in the last stitch you’re working, yarn over and insert your hook. Yarn over again and pull up a loop (5 loops left on your hook), yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook (4 loops on hook).
Finally, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on your hook.
To complete the cluster stitch chain 2. And there you have it!
Another little glimpse of my upcoming shawl using the cluster stitch below. It’s the row of stitch just below the open blocks.
I hope these quick little tutorials are a helpful tool!
