Cluster V Stitch – Pattern Description
The cluster V stitch is a one-row repeat crochet pattern constructed with clusters of double crochet two-together stitches (dc2tog) placed in a V shape to create a beautiful textured fabric. It works great for modern blankets, baby afghans, garments, and accessories.
The one-row repeat pattern is so easy to remember, that you will not need to reference the pattern once you made the first couple of rows. The Cluster V Stitch is one of those patterns to crochet while watching your favorite tv show.

Double Crochet Two Together (dc2tog) – just like the title implies you will crochet 2 incomplete double crochet stitches together. It doesn’t matter where the 2 double crochet stitches are made, they can be made in the same stitch (or chain), or they can be crocheted in different stitches, the technique is the same.
Step 1. Make your first incomplete dc: o, insert the hook into the stitch (or chain) and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook). Yo and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook(2 loops on the hook). Leave the incomplete dc on the hook.
Step 2. Make another incomplete dc in the same stitch (or chain): yo and insert the hook into the same stitch (or chain) and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), yo and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook (3 loops on hook). You now have 2 incomplete dc stitches on your hook.
Step 3. Time to crochet them together: yo and pull through all 3 loops on the hook. You have now completed a dc2tog stitch.
Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain multiples of 3ch + 2ch. My starting chain is 29ch.
Row 1: dc2tog in the 6th ch from the hook, ch1, dc2tog in the same chain, *sk2, dc2tog in the next ch, ch1, dc2tog in the same chain*, repeat until you have 2ch left, sk1, dc in the last ch, turn
Row 2: *ch3 (counts as a dc), dc2tog in the ch space from the previous row, ch1, dc2tog in the same ch space*, repeat until you crocheted in the last ch space from the previous row, sk1, dc in the last stitch (which is the top ch of the ch3 you made at the beginning of the row)
Repeat row 2 until you have the required length
