Textured Cluster Stitch – Pattern Description
The Textured Cluster Stitch is a two-row repeat crochet pattern constructed with clusters of different height stitches and back post single crochet stitches that creates a textured fabric that looks like clusters stacked on top of each other. It works great for baby blankets, modern afghans, garments, shawls, and hats.
The Textured Cluster Stitch is easy to learn and once you make a few rows, you will be able to replicate the pattern without counting stitches or keeping a count of rows.

Crocheting In The Back Loop Only (blo) – A stitch has a front and back loop that meet at one end and look like a horizontal V (looks like this >).
To make single crochet in the back loop only, insert the hook in the middle of the V from the top, and under the back loop (the loop that is away from you), yo and draw up a loop (you will have 2 loops on the hook), yo and pull through the 2 loops on the hook.
- ch1 at the end of each row does not count as a stitch
- stitches contained within ** are the repeat section for that row
- stitches contained within ( ) are crocheted in the same stitch or chain
Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain multiples of 3. My starting chain is 27ch.
Row 1: sc in 3rd ch from hook, 2dc in the same ch, *sk 2, (sc, 2dc) in the next ch*, repeat from * until you have 3ch left, sk2, sc in the last ch, ch1, turn.
Row 2: sc, *ch2, sk 2, sc blo*, repeat from * until you have 1st left, sc in the last stitch (the 2ch you skipped on row 1 counts as a sc, you will be sc in the top chain), ch1, turn
Row 3: sc, *(sc, 2dc) in next st, sk2*, repeat from * until you have 1st left, sc, ch1, turn
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until you have the required length
