The Tiny Clusters Tunisian Crochet stitch is mindless and fun, and makes for a dreamy crocheted fabric. Let’s learn the Tiny Tunisian Clusters stitch today!
Tiny Clusters Tunisian
This fun Tunisian crochet stitch is made up of – quite literally – tiny clusters. To me they also resemble small clam shells and I just love the mermaid vibe it gives off. I will be using this stitch in a NEW free pattern here soon, so stay tuned! You can also take a peek at the “Tunisan” category in my collection of crochet patterns. 😀
To make the Tiny Clusters Tunisian stitch, you need to start with a multiple of THREE chains, then add two more. For the example and video tutorial below, I started with a chain of 11.
Multiple = 3 + 2 for beginning chain.
See the VIDEO tutorial for the Tiny Clusters Tunisian Crochet stitch below!
To make Tiny Clusters:
1. Chain a multiple of 3 + 2. (for example, in the video below I start with a chain of 11)
2. Pull up a loop in the second chain from hook and in each chain to the end.
3. Backward pass: Chain 2, yarn over pull through 4 loops. Chain 2, yarn over and pull through 4 loops. Continue until you have only 2 loops remaining on your hook. Chain one, yarn over pull through last 2 remaining loops.
4. Pull up a loop in TOP LOOP ONLY of the first full size chain (see what I mean in the video below). Pull up a loop in the top of the next “cluster” or “shell”. Pull up a loop in the TOP LOOP ONLY of the next two full size chains, pull up a loop in the top of the next cluster or shell. Continue pulling up loops in this manner all the way to the end of the row. When you reach the end, pull up a loop in the second to last chain. Insert your hook through both sides of the outside stitch. You are now ready for another Backward Pass, the same as done in step 3.
Repeat the process until desired height is reached.
When ready to fasten off, slip stitch in each of the loops you would normally use to create a new row. Voila!
