Granny Clusters tutorial

Granny Clusters are clusters of three dc’s in one stitch with two skipped stitches in between. Because the full sized blanket consists of 241 stitches (and baby of 145), we can’t divide by three evenly. So we’ll be making 242 stitches (146 for baby version) in the first row, and 241 (145 for baby version) in each row after. You won’t see this once the blanket is finished.

Join your first colour with a ss. Crochet three ch that count as a dc here and further on (photo 1). Work a dc in the same stitch as your ss (photo 2). You’ll now start with the actual Granny Clusters. Skip two stitches on the grey row, and make three dc’s in the next stitch (photo 3). Repeat this until the end of the row. Make two dc’s in the last stitch (photo 4). Cut yarn if you need to change colours, and turn your blanket.

If you’ve changed colours, join the new colour with a ss in the final stitch of the previous row and work three ch (photo 5). Work three dc’s in the space between the last and second-to-last dc cluster (photo 6). Work three dc’s in every space until the end of the row, and a dc in the final stitch of the row (which is the third ch of the first stitch in your previous row) (photo 7). Cut yarn if you need to change colours, and turn your blanket.

If you’ve changed colours, join the new colour with a ss in the final stitch of the previous row. Crochet three ch, and crochet a dc in the first space between clusters. (photo 8,9). Crochet Granny Clusters consisting of three dc’s in each space to the end. Work one dc in your final stitch (which is the third ch of the first stitch in your previous row) (photo 10). Cut yarn and turn your blanket.

You can repeat the final two rows until you’ve reached your desired length. Check the crochet diagram for a schematic representation. This is how you crochet Granny Clusters!
