I am a big fan of cluster stitches!  I mean seriously?  What’s not to love!  They create beautiful textures, are pretty thick, and they work up fast.  Cluster stitches are my go-to stitches for scarves and blankets/afghans.  I also love them for washcloths.  The texture really pops when you crochet them in cotton.  The offset cluster stitch is a new one I just learned.  It came from the book listed below.

Don’t forget to pin this stitch for your next project!

The Stitch

Foundation Chain
The Offset Clusters Stitch is worked in multiples of 3+2.  For my example swatch, I chained 30 + 2 = 32 chains total.

Row 1
Cluster Stitch into the back hump of the 5th chain from the hook, *skip the next 2 chains, Shell Stitch into the next chain*, repeat from * until you get to the last chain.  Double Crochet in the last chain, Chain 4 and Turn.

Row 2
Cluster Stitch into the base chain in your turning chain, *Shell Stitch into the Double Crochet on the next Shell Stitch*, repeat until you get to the last stitch.  Double Crochet into the 3rd chain of your turning chain, Chain 4 and Turn.

Row 3+
Repeat Row 2 to continue the pattern.
