How to Crochet the Cluster V Stitch


The Cluster V stitch is a loftier, cozier version of the traditional v stitch.  It is a great stitch for blankets, scarves, and lots more!

Instructions:


Begin with a starting chain, any multiple of three (I used 12 chains for the swatch shown in the pictures).


  1. For row 1, start in the 5th chain from the hook.
  2. Wrap yarn around hook and bring up a loop (3 loops on the hook). 
  3. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loops on the hook (2 loops on the hook).
  4. Wrap yarn around hook and bring up a loop from that same chain (4 loops on the hook).
  5. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loop on the hook (3 loops on the hook).
  6. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through all three loops.
  7. Chain 2
  8. Then working into that same chain, wrap yarn around hook, bring up a loop (three loops on the hook).
  9. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loops (two loops on the hook).
  10. Wrap yarn around hook and go back into the same chain and bring up a loop (4 loops on the hook).
  11. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loops (3 loops on the hook)
  12. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through all three loops.
  13. Skip two chains and then repeat steps 2-12.
  14. Repeat across, working steps 2-12 until one chain remains.
  15. Work a dc into the last chain.
  16. To begin row 2, ch 3 and turn.
  17. Working into the chain 2 spaces from the previous row, repeat steps 2-12 (instead of working into the chains, you'll work into the chain 2 spaces all the way across).
  18. To finish off the row, work a dc into the topmost chain of the turning chain from the previous row,
  19. Repeat row 2 for desired height.

Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!
