Open Cluster Stitch

⇐ Back to Lace Stitches


This technique creates a pattern of lace scallops. It is done in a similar way as making scallops in regular crochet. In the return of the row, loops are togged together as in a decrease, and a chain of matching number is made between the togs to balance the latter. Below, you can follow the instructions to learn how to make the pattern as shown in the photograph...

To begin: Chain in multiples of four to desired length plus two.

Row one forward: Insert hook in next chain space and pull up a loop. * Insert hook into next, yarn over and pull up a loop. Repeat from * keeping all chains on hook. Row one return: Yarn over and pull back through three loops. * Chain three, yarn over and pull through five loops. Repeat from * to last four. Chain three and pull through last four loops.

Row two forward:  Chain one. Pull up a loop from the chain, (the top of very first cluster). * Pull up a loop from each of the three chains in the next chain space, pull up a loop from the closing chain of the cluster in previous row. Repeat from * to end. Row two return: Yarn over and pull back through three loops. * Chain three, yarn over and pull through five loops. Repeat from * to last four. Chain three and pull through last four loops.
