How to Do the Cluster Stitch

The cluster stitch is made up of a number of stitches* that are half closed, then joined together as described below.

*The number of stitches varies from pattern to pattern. The pattern you are making will tell you how many stitches to use in forming the cluster you are making for that pattern.

This example shows a cluster made with 4 double crochet:

1: * Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over, draw yarn through the stitch, yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook *, repeat from * to * 3 times.
2: Yarn over, draw yarn through 5 loops on hook.
This shows what a completed cluster made with 4 double crochet will look like.
