If you enjoy this stitch you may also like the Double Crochet Cluster stitch which is worked in a similar manner.

You’ll see the single crochet cluster is very similar to the single crochet three together, sc3tog.

There’s one important distinction though, the sc3tog is a decrease stitch. So you’ll end up with 2 less stitches.

The single crochet cluster is a cluster stitch that does not decrease. Since they’re made the same way, we have to replace the stitches we’re taking out.

To do so we simply, chain 2 to replace those lost two stitches.


  • Any yarn and matching crochet hook.
