The Yarn That’s Perfect for This single Crochet Cluster
For this crochet stitch tutorial I used Red Heart Soft Yarn in Guacamole and Teal. You can try any color combination and still get the same results! This stitch would look great in a blanket, scarf and even a hat!
The possibilities are endless with this fun stitch! You will also need to have a crochet hook that corresponds to the yarn you are using, scissors and a yarn needle.

Single Crochet Cluster Tutorial
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
- Four Weight Yarn
- Crochet Hook 6 mm

My tutorial is with different color yarns, but you can do the same color until you get the hang of the stitch. You can get some help with changing yarn colors in my tutorial on the blog.
The Tutorial Steps
BEGIN: Chain an odd number
STEP 1: Chain 2, Crochet 2 Single Crochets in the 3rd chain from the hook (1st CLUSTER!!) skip a chain, then crochet 2 Single Crochets again in the same stitch, Keep doing this until the end of the chain make sure to end with 1 Single Crochet (not 2!!) (change colors here if you choose)
STEP 2: Chain 2, Crochet 1 single crochet in the same stitch (to make a cluster!!) Crochet 2 single crochets between the first and second single crochet cluster of the last row, repeat this until the end of the row, make sure to end with 2 single crochets this time!! (lets keep it even!!) (change colors here if you choose)
STEP 3: Chain 2, Crochet 2 Single Crochets in the first and second cluster of the previous round. Crochet 2 Single Crochets between every cluster of the previous row until the end of the current row. Make sure to end with 1 single crochet (not 2!!)
STEP 4: Chain 2, Crochet 1 Single Crochet in the same spot. Crochet 2 Single Crochets in the first and second cluster of the previous row. Crochet 2 Single Crochets between every cluster of the previous row until the end of the current row. make sure to end with 2 single crochets this time!! ( lets keep it even!!)
KEEP GOING: Continue repeating Steps 3 & 4 until desired length is obtained and remember if you do switch colors you will have a lot of yarn ends to weave in.
FINISHING: To finish up this stitch you will most likely want to have a yarn needle to sew in all the ends with.
