Learn to Crochet - Clusters
Any combination of stitches may be joined into a cluster by leaving the last loop of each stitch on the hook until they are worked off together at the end. Working stitches together in this way can also be a method of decreasing.
Be sure to read the instructions carefully to see how and where the hook should be inserted for each "leg" of the cluster. The "legs" can be worked over adjacent stitches, or stitches can be skipped in between the "legs".
Clusters can be worked in half double crochet, double crochet or longer stitches.
Three double crochet cluster: work over adjacent number of stitches in this example.
(1) Work a double crochet into each of the next three stitches, holding the last loop of each double crochet on the hook.
(2) Yarn over and pull the yarn through all four loops on the hook.
