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 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.
Any yarn or hook will do, but here is what I am using:
- WeCrochet Wool of the Andes Superwash / Fjord Heather
- BQueen Collection Blend Hook I – 5.50mm / Rosewood
- 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.
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!
