Granny Cluster Stitch – Pattern Description
The Granny Cluster Stitch is a double-sided pattern created with groups of 3 double crochets built one on top of the other to create a flat pattern with visual interest.
It works great for baby blankets, modern afghans, clothes, and scarves.
The two-row repeat pattern is easy to remember and you will not need to reference the pattern once you made a few rows.
If you are using 2 colors with this pattern, you can carry the yarn on the side of it, just like I did in my video tutorial.

Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain multiples of 2. My starting chain is 26chs.
Row 1: 3dc in the 6th ch from the hook, *ch1, sk1, 3dc in next*, repeat from * until you have 2chs left, ch1, sk1, dc in next, ch1, turn
Row 2: sc in the first st, sc in the ch1 space, *ch2, sc in the next ch1 space*, repeat from * until you have 1st left, sc in that last st, turn.
Row 3: ch4, sk1, 3dc in the next ch2 space below, *ch1, sk1, 3dc in the next ch2 space below*, repeat from * until you have 2sts left, ch1, sk1, dc in last st, turn.
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until you have the desired length.
