stitch pattern: open work with clusters

9 Comments

good to see you again, if you have celebrated halloween i hope you have enjoyed it! 

 

the patchwork blanket is finished, which i will show you next week and then i will also explain how i made the container and basket firmer with the diluted glue.

in response to the patchwork blanket someone asked me about the bobble stitch pattern. since it is a few years ago that i have hooked the shawl (which is now part of the blanket), it was a bit of a puzzle but i managed to reproduce it. it is a little funny because i’ve never been a big fan of bobble stitch patterns, except along edges such as here but apparently i did like to crochet these bobbles or whatever you want to call them, perhaps clusters is better. i do not know where i got the original stitch pattern from, my shawl dates from 2010.

crochet stitch pattern
how to create the open work with clusters 
used stitches (american terms):
  • ch = chains
  • dc = double crochet
  • 2dctog = 2 double crochets together = cluster

crochet stitch pattern open work with clusters

first some notes:

  1. choose the yarn you like
  2. it is best to work loosely
  3. if you like bigger clusters just crochet 3dctog instead of 2dctog

.

  • make chains as many as you like *
  • row 1. make 1 dc into the 8th chain from hook, 3 ch, 2dctog into 3rd chain from hook, skip 2 ch, 1 dc into next ch (1 cluster made), *2 ch, skip 2 ch, 1 dc into next ch, 3 ch, 2dctog into 3rd chain from hook, skip 2 ch, 1 dc into next ch*, repeat between * and * until end of row, make 5 ch, turn
  • row 2. skip the cluster, make 1 dc into the next dc, 3 ch, 2dctog into 3rd chain from hook, skip 2 ch-space, 1 dc into next dc, *2 ch, skip cluster, 1 dc into the next dc, 3 ch, 2dctog into 3rd chain from hook, skip 2 ch-space, 1 dc into next ch*, repeat between * and * until end of row, make 5 ch, turn
  • row 3 and further. repeat row 2 until your work has the desired size.

* detach/disconnect remaining chains and weave in yarn end.

that is it!
