Cluster stitches are some of my favorites, so I thought this year I would go through some of the different cluster stitches for the Stitch Tutorials. I love how the cluster stitches move along so smoothly, almost like a wave! So, lets get started with the Single Crochet Cluster Stitch!
Check out the other tutorials in the Cluster Stitch Series: Half Double Crochet Cluster Stitch and Double Crochet Cluster Stitch

The Single Crochet Cluster Stitch can be done with almost any yarn or hook, so feel free to use whatever you have!
Learn The Single Crochet Cluster Stitch
The Single Crochet Cluster Stitch is quite an easy stitch once you get the hang of it. It flows nicely and is based on a 2-row repeat.
The pattern also has a wrong side (ws), and right side (rd); however both sides are lovely and offer a different look with fabulous texture.
You should start with a chain in multiples of 2.
Below you will find the written steps, followed by the step-by-step photo tutorial.
