How to Crochet a Cluster Stitch

A cluster (no abbreviation) is a set of crochet stitches that you work across an equal number of stitches and join together (or cluster) at the top, forming a triangle shape that resembles an upside-down shell stitch. Many crocheters use this stitch combination in conjunction with shells.

1

Yarn over (yo), insert the hook into the next stitch, yarn over, draw the yarn through the stitch, yarn over, draw the yarn through 2 loops on the hook.

Two loops remain on the hook. One half-closed double crochet is complete. A half-closed stitch is one that’s only worked partway, and then finished at the end of the combination.

2

Repeat the preceding step three times.

You should end up with 5 loops on the hook.

3

Yarn over and draw the yarn through all 5 loops on the hook

One 4-double-crochet (4-dc) cluster is complete.

4

Take a look at the symbol for a cluster stitch.

Many people who crochet prefer to read stitch diagrams instead of written instructions. This symbol for cluster stitch would appear in a crochet stitch diagram.
