Learn to Crochet - Forked Cluster Stitch

It's been a little while since I added a new crochet stitch to my library of video tutorials, and I've been working on a crochet project that incorporates a stitch that I have yet to demonstrate. What a perfect opportunity to share it with you! So here it is...

This is called the Forked Cluster and it is a variation of double crochet where the bottom part of the stitch spans two stitches, but the result at the top is just one stitch. This makes for a very tight crocheted fabric and an interesting upside down V design.

Here's a quick little video demonstrating the stitch...


The project I'm working on in this video is not quite finished, but as soon as it is, you can be sure to read about it here!

Happy Stitching!

  • Hey Mary Grace,
    You are a great teacher...I just love learning new stitches and what a pretty stitch pattern it makes! I'm trying to figure out what you are making! Another baby blanket? Perhaps another dishcloth? I'll just have to be patient! LOL!
    God Bless You,
    Merry :)

  • Mary Grace,

    Thank you for posting this video otherwise I would have been completely lost on trying to figure out this stitch. I'm just learning to crochet and have a small problem. I don't know the correct way to turn the work over after each row without losing stitches. You see, i was trying to make a square of forked clusters and ended up with a pyramid instead! I have no idea how that happened! Please help me! I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you, Irina

  • I found your blog when searching for a basket weave video. Thanks for introducing me to a whole lot of new stitches.
