How To Crochet the Cluster Stitch

Hi friends! It’s so much fun to try new stitches and I’ve really enjoyed sharing some of my faves with you & for example). I’ve been eyeing this crocheted cluster stitch for a while and am currently using it to make a rug for my daughter’s bathroom. It’s a gorgeous and fairly easy crochet stitch that creates a dense fabric with a beautiful and reversible texture. It would work wonderfully for baby blankets, dishcloths, scarves and so much more. A blankie would be really nice as there aren’t a lot of holes for baby to stick their little fingers through. You really only need to know how to single crochet and double crochet for this pattern, so if you’ve got those down you should definitely give it a try!

My favorite way to learn a new stitch is by watching a video, so take a look at the video I’ve made on YouTube by clicking “play” on the image below:

And here is my people explanation on how to create this gorgeous stitch!

Explanation on How To Crochet The Cluster Stitch

Step 1 Chain an even number of stitches

Step 2 You will now work the first row. For row 1, sc in 2nd stitch from the hook, sc in next st, *ch1, sk st, sc in next st. Repeat from * across to last st. Sc in final stitch, turn.

Step 3 You will now work row 2 which will create the clusters. For row 2 Ch 4, work as if to double crochet in 1st ch space, but only pull through the first two loops on the hook. Repeat this again, crocheting as if to make a double crochet but only pull through the first two loops on the hook. Continue to do this, working into the same chain space, until there are 5 loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull through all 5 loops on the hook, ch 1. Repeat this pattern, working a cluster into each chain space across the row. When you get to the last two stitches of the row, ch 1, and double crochet into the last stitch.

Step 4 Simply repeat these two rows for as long as you’d like! That’s all there is to it! And don’t forget to check to see exactly how it’s done.

And here’s a look at the rug I’m working on for my daughter. It’s made will 100% cotton so it’s absorbent for use as a little rug when she steps out of the bath. I’m using a lot of bright colors with the various cotton yarns that I have on hand. It will hopefully go great in her happy little bathroom! You can also see how the stitch looks pretty cool with color changes.

Hopefully you enjoy this stitch as much as I do! I’d love to hear what you think you’d make with it in the comments below!

Does the cluster stitch use a lot of wool? I’ve discontinued with the basket weave as it is using too much wool

Thank you so much for the video, the rug is super cute! I love your patterns Jessica.

So glad you like the video and the rug Cheryl! Have a great weekend and thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment.

I have a question? Where do you find new stitches? I have a book of stitches, but it is rather overwhelming.

Oh boy – I find them all over! I have several books as well. I also find them online by doing google searches. I also love New Stitch A Day on YouTube where you can find tons of stitches!

This looks super easy, have to finish my current project first ….lol It looks like a bit of a yarn eater though, does it use a lot if yarn.

Thank you for showing this beautiful pattern.

Will you need to put something on the back side so it doesn’t slip?

I love the rug idea. What yarn would you recommend for it?

Any yarn you’d like -for a bath mat I’m using cotton so it absorbs the water when my daughter steps out of the bath. ????

Thank you so much! My brother just found out their expecting so I’m looking to make them a crib blanket that’s about 36″x52″, or something along those lines. This is such a pretty stitch! Now I just need to select the perfect yarn and decide how much to buy. Any advice is welcomed! This is the first time I’m going without a pattern and recommendations. I’m looking forward to the project. :o)
