Three Treble Cluster Tutorial

Image

As far as I am concerned everyone who crochet’s should learn to work clusters. It is my opinion that cluster’s are one of crochetings fun stitches to do. Clusters come in all kinds of variations using all of the basic stitches at one time or another. So if you have a cluster in a pattern – make sure you read through the instructions carefully. But once you have mastered the technique used in making a basic cluster, learning the rest of them become so much easier to crochet.

Clusters are so popular and used in so many patterns, I could not even began to list them. I just recently used the Three Treble Cluster in crocheting a book marker.

Alright enough talking, lets get our yarn and hook and hopefully you will enjoy crocheting clusters as much as I do.

About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
