Stitchopedia-Stitches-Double-Crochet-Cluster-Cover

Learn to make the 2 double crochet cluster, which is also sometimes called a bobble stitch or a cluster stitch. Whatever you call it, it is very similar to a dc2tog, only it is worked in one stitch, not two. This post includes written instructions for the stitch, step by step photos, a video, and a chart for a little practice piece.

Here is the video:

The Faded Ripple pattern uses the dc cl stitch, but it is place a little differently. No worries, though, there are very clear photos to show you where to place them!
