Here is the Easy Lace Clusters Crochet Stitch Tutorial at Nana’s Crafty Home!
This stitch is really easy and a great way to learn and/or practice the puff stitch. The puff stitch is really popular in crochet designs and is a great way to add texture and visual appeal to many projects!
This pretty stitch combines double crochet v-stitches with puff stitches worked in the ch 2 space of the v-stitch from the previous row. This “frames” the puff stitch giving it a lacy and pretty appearance. Your end result is a fabric with very good drape and an open lacy look.
Perfect stitch to chill out with in front of Netflix, too! With an easy two-row repeat that is easy to remember.
I used this stitch in my Shades of Pink Infinity Scarf and I am sure I will be finding new projects to incorporate this fun stitch in!
