Cluster V Stitch Crochet stitch pattern

This cluster used 2dctog all in one stitch

 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

Cluster V-Stitch. - Work (dc2tog, ch1, dc2tog) into same space or stitch. 
Cluster (dc2tog in same stitch) - 
YO, Insert Hook into stitch, YO, Pull through, YO pull through 2 loops only (2 left on hook)
YO, Insert Hook into same stitch, YO, Pull through, YO pull through 2 loops, YO pull
through all 3 loops.
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.
Repeat 2nd Row for the remainder of your pattern
