What's a Cluster Stitch Anyway?
This crochet baby blanket uses cluster stitches throughout to get the wavy look of this pattern, but what even is a cluster stitch anyway? Well, for starters, a "cluster stitch" is an overarching term that defines a few stitches, all of which are similarly created by working multiple stitches into the same space, creating a clump, or cluster, of stitches: the popcorn, puff and bobble stitches.
These types of stitches are great for adding texture and visual interest to projects and are especially great for crochet baby blankets since they add the bumps and ridges that babies love to feel. Each of these stitches differs from the other by the way the individual stitch loops are finished off (or not finished off, as the case may be.
For puff stitches, many loops of yarn are held together by one final slip stitch whereas with the bobble stitch, each of the loops is partially finished and anchored to the chain space you're working into. Popcorn stitches are working very similarly to bobbles, but involve dropping a stitch for each popcorn you make.
