This Cluster V Crochet Stitch pattern is a great stitch to use for a crochet afghan or beanie! I’m a fan of the cluster stitch and have always like the V stitch as well. This stitch seems to do both with style!

This stitch is done in multiples of 4 + 3
To start: chain in multiples of 4 then once you reach your desired size chain 3 more
sc in 2nd ch from hook. sc in next st then ch 2, *skip 2 sts then sc in next 2 sts * repeat til end of row where you should end perfectly after your last 2 sc’s of the row. Ch 3 and turn
Row 2 (1st row of repeat)
You will be skipping over the sc’s and working in the ch 2 spaces this row, you will be making a DC decrease to create the clusters for this row. So let’s begin.
Skip the first 2 sc’s and working in the ch 2, * YO, insert your hook in the ch 2 space and pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops leaving the last loop on the hook. Repeat this 2 more times.
Now you should have 4 loops on your hook.YO and pull through all 4 loops, ch 2 then working in the same ch 2 space, create another cluster just like the one you just made.* You have just completed
your first cluster set. You will be making them just like that throughout this pattern. From now on I will refer to them as “cluster set”
Now without chaining just move to the next ch 2 space and repeat what is in between the *’s . When you reach the last 2 sc’s of your row you want to skip the first sc and DC into the last sc of the row. CH 1 and turn.
sc in first dc of row. ch 1 then *crochet 2 single crochets in the ch 2 space. ch 2* repeat what is in between the *’s. At the end of your row, after you’ve crocheted your 2 single crochets in
the last ch 2 space, you want to only ch 1 then sc into the top of the ch 3 to end your row. ch 4 and turn.
Work 1 cluster into the ch 1 space then move over to your first ch 2 space and work your cluster set (cluster, ch 2, cluster) combo just like you did for row 2. Remember don’t ch 1 between each
cluster set, just move over to the next ch 2 space and start your next set of clusters. Repeat for row. After the last ch 2 space is done you will notice there is a single ch space here as well.
Just like we had at the start of this row. You want to put 1 cluster in this ch 1 space. Then ch 1 and DC into last sc of row.. ch 1 and turn.
sc in 1st dc of row, sc in ch 1 space. ch 2 then *crochet 2 single crochets in the next ch 2 space & ch 2* repeat what is in between the *’s. after working your last set of 2 sc’s in your final ch 2
space what you have left on your row is a single cluster and the ch 4 at the end of your row if you’ve done it correctly. So ch 2 then put 2 single crochets in the ch 4 space to end your row.
This ends the repeat. So back up to row 2 and repeat rows 2 – 5 until you reach your desired size.
