The Crown Clusters Crochet Stitch is a pretty stitch is super easy to create. It has a beautiful design and texture.
It can be used for scarves, headbands, but I think it would be gorgeous for an afghan! I used this stitch to make the Cluster Stripes Baby Blanket.
Worsted weight (4) yarn – I used I Love this Yarn in Yellow
5.00 mm hook
