This week we are learning to crochet the DC Cluster. Join us for our Totally Textured Tuesday series, where you’ll learn a new crochet stitch every week!

BQUEEN COLLECTION #TOTALLYTEXTUREDTUESDAY

Hi again! Makenzie from BQueen Collection sharing another Totally Textured Tuesday stitch for our 12 week series. We are already on Week 8, but here is what we have done so far:

Week 1: Single Crochet Back Loop Only (sc BLO)

Week 2: Blanket Stitch

Week 3: Even Moss Stitch

Week 4: Mini Basket Weave

Week 5: Bar Stitch

Week 6: Even Berry Stitch

Week 7: HDC FL + BL

WEEK 8: Crochet DC CLUSTER

It’s time for the Double Crochet Cluster! If you are thinking that this looks similar to the Even Berry Stitch of Week 6, you’re right but it is not exactly the same! A little less bobble, completely reversable, slightly different technique – yet just as lofty. PLUS, this stitch is not technically an “even” stitch.

We want to see it! If you try any of the stitches with us during the series, tag us @WeCrochetOfficial and @BQueenCollection AND use #totallytexturedtuesday so we can share!

MATERIALS

Any yarn or hook will do, but here is what I am using:

ABBREVIATIONS

  • ch: chain
  • rep: repeat
  • sc: single crochet
  • dc: double crochet
  • RS: right side
  • WS: wrong side
  • dc cluster: double crochet 2 together; *yo, insert hook in to st, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook; rep from * one more time in the same st, yo and pull through all 3 loops on hook.

INSTRUCTIONS

Multiple: 2

Row 1 (RS): Ch an even number of sts, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across, ch1, turn.

Row 2 (WS): In first st, *sc, dc cluster in next st; repeat from * across ending with a sc in last st, ch1, turn.

Repeat Row 2 until desired measurement.

Reversible and awesome! We’ll see you next week.

Hi! I’m Makenzie from BQueen Collection and my husband I make custom wood crochet hooks while I also dabble in pattern design. We live in eastern Colorado, enjoy fishing and the outdoors, and have three young boys who keep us very busy (plus eight chickens because we eat soooo many eggs). We’d love to connect – follow us on Instagram @bqueencollection and see what we’re up to!

    I’m a newer crocheter. When you are doing the DC cluster are they all in the same stitch or like they show in videos the DC2tog is combining 2 stitches together ?
