The Interlocking Cluster Stitch is another great stitch with lots of texture! This stitch has two very different looking sides, but both are attractive.
Even though the two sides are different, I would not hesitate to use this stitch in a project where both side were shown simply because of how attractive and unique both sides are!
This stitch could be used in a variety of projects. I am tempted to try it in a crochet blanket and can’t wait to see what you come up with! In the tutorial below I will work the Interlocking Cluster Stitch pattern in two different colours, however you may work it in as many as you would like. It will always look good!

Materials for this Tutorial:
For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. It is a worsted weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm crochet hook by Rowan Yarns. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.
Thank you so much for stopping by! If you enjoy the tutorial below, be sure to also check out some of the many other crochet stitch tutorials on my site and pin this for later! You may wish to start with the Spiked Sedge Stitch | How to Crochet.
The Interlocking Cluster Stitch:
Ch – Chain
Cl – Cluster Stitch ([yo, insert your hook into the sp indicated, yo and draw up a loop. yo and draw through 2 lps] three times, yo and draw through all loops on your hook. Cluster Stitch made.)
Dc – Double Crochet
Rpt – Repeat
Sc – Single Crochet
Sk – Skip
Sl St – Slip Stitch
V-st – V Stitch ([dc, ch 1, dc] all into the same st. V-st made.)
Yo – Yarn Over
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial.
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need a multiple of three stitches for your foundation chain plus two (multiples of 3+2).
For example, with colour A, ch 29.
I will be working in two colours: A and B.
Dc in 4th ch from your hook (Counts as a dc), ch 1, dc in same, *sk the next 2 sts, v-st in the next st; Rpt from * across to the final st, dc in the last st, ch 1, turn.
Sc in 1st st, ch 1, *in-between the next 2 v-sts [sc, ch 1, cl, ch 1, sc] in same sp, ch 1, rpt from * across, sc in top of turning ch (change to colour B if desired in this st), ch 3, turn.
V-st in the centre of the next v st 2 rows below and in each v-st across, dc in final sc, ch 1, turn.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern repeat rows two and three, working two rows in the one colour before switching to the alternating colour in the final stitch. Fasten off, weave in your ends.

I really Iike your interlocking cluster stitch. I only make infant hats so I needed to alter your process. I only did two stitches for the cluster and I had to figure out how to join the rounds. I did not turn after each round. I’m happy with the results.
