Hi, I'm Ava Lynne Green with Terri's Yarns and Crafts in Sevierville, Tennessee. Today, I'm going to show you how to do a diagonal cluster stitch. To do this pattern, you start out with a multiple of four stitches plus one. I insert my hook through the chain, pull up a loop, go through two loops on my hook. Wrap the yarn, insert the hook back down into the same chain, pull up a loop and go through two. Go over to the next chain and I'm going to do a single crochet in it and chain two. And now I'm going to work another cluster, wrap, go through two, pull up a loop, go through two loops, pull up another loop and go through two. I have four loops on my hook, wrap the yarn and go through all and simply repeat that the rest of the way across the row. When I have my first row completed, this is what it's going to look like. When I am ready to start row two, I chain four and work a cluster in the third, chain from the hook, that's my starting cluster, go over to the chain two space, do a single crochet, chain two and a cluster all in that chain two space and go to the next chain two space and repeat. And that's how you do a diagonal cluster and can make a dishcloth. You can find information about this pattern at Terri's Yarns and Crafts.
