Cluster V Stitch Crochet stitch pattern



This cluster used 2dctog all in one stitch
Pin it
 Crochet Clusters are one of my favorite design elements. It's simple and creates a lot of texture. If you want to make the most out of the yarn you have this is a great stitch pattern. As you will see below it only uses 47 yards.

If you are looking for other Cluster patterns please see pictures and links at the end of this post.

Swatch size: 7 x 9 inches
Gauge:2.85 stitches per inch and 1.3 rows per inch

Abbreviations:
Cluster V-Stitch. - Work (dc2tog, ch1, dc2tog) into same space or stitch.

Ch - Chain
dc - Double Crochet*
sc - (if you choose pattern with Single crochets)
*  - Repeat instructions between asterisks
Yarn: Caron one Pound, Cream. This 7 x 9 inch swatch used 47 yards of yarn.

2 Pattern Options:
- I have 2 patterns below. The first is a pattern that includes a base row of Single Crochets.
The other is without and uses only the Cluster V stitch. I prefer using a base row of SC's only 
because it's much more appealing to the eye.

Pattern with a Single Crochet base row
Make a chain length in multiples of 3 + 2
Chain 20 
Hook: I / 5.50mm

Row 1: in 2nd chain from hook, do 1sc. Do 1sc in each chain across the row (19 sc made)
Row 2: ch3 (is first dc) CL-V in next st, *Skip 2, CL-V* when 2 sts left..Skip 1, DC in last.
Row 3: ch3, CL-V in each ch1sp across the row. end with dc in tch.
Repeat row 3 for the remainder of your pattern

Pattern without a Single Crochet base row
This pattern uses a multiple of 3 plus 1 chains

Row 1: Work Cluster V-stitch in 4th ch from hook (the 3 skipped chains is first DC)
*skip 2ch, Cluster V-st in next* repeat from * to * to last 3ch then skip 2ch, 1dc in last ch. Turn. 
Row 2: ch3 (1st dc) work Cluster V-st in each ch1 space across the row, end with 1dc in top of TCH.
Turn.

Modified Silt Stitch Crochet Baby Blanket

A beginner pattern
Pin it

I found this beautiful stitch pattern that I found on Pinterest. It was made by the Unraveled Mitten at this website. I'm addicted to these Ombre Yarns by Red Heart so I have been putting many to good use!

The texture is created by doing a row of Double Crochets on the even numbered rows. Complete pattern is below.

 A beginner pattern
Pin it
I used Red Heart Supersaver Ombre Yarn. It's quite soft for Red Heart so I thought I would use it for a baby blanket. My gauge was off quite a bit. I wanted to make it 36 inches square but it ended up larger than that. I ended the blanket when I used up the second skein so it is only 32 inches tall.

My other Blankets using Ombre yarns:

Primrose Crochet Baby Blanket

Backside of the blanket

Closeup of the Front of the blanket
Pin it

I recently found the Primrose Stitch which is my new favorite crochet stitch pattern. I used it to create a beautiful Baby Blanket using Red Heart Super Saver Ombre Yarn called "Coral".  I have found this yarn to be quite soft for a Red Heart yarn. I made this for Warm Up America. It looks beautiful on both the back and front side of the blanket.


Stitch Pattern: Primrose
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Ombre, "Coral"
Amount of yarn needed: 2 Skeins (1 Skein 482 yards =17 inches in height) 964 yards used
Chain: 122 or a multiple of 3 + 2
Hook Size: I / 5.50mm
Size: 38in wide x 35in length
Gauge: 3.25 stitches per inch

Abbreviations: 
sc = Single Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
chi = Chain
st = Stitch
TCH = Turning Chain (If not comfortable with TCH's then see below the pattern for an alternate)

Note: If you're not comfortable doing a turning chain then in Row 2 replace the "Ch3" with "Ch2, 1hdc in first stitch". Then continue on with the remainder of the pattern. That way you have a stitch to end row 3 in instead of ending in a Turning Chain.

PATTERN:
Row 1: in 2nd chain from hook do 1sc, skip 1 (1sc, ch2, 1sc) in next *skip 2, shell,* end
w/ sc in last chain

 Row 2: ch3 (is first dc), do 3dc in each ch2 space across the row. End w/ 1dc in last st. 

 Row 3: Ch 1, 1sc in first stitch, *(1sc, ch2, 1sc) in the middle dc* end with 1sc in TCH

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 for the remainder of your pattern......
