Green Baby Blanket, How to Make 2-dc Clusters

In the comments to my Green Baby Blanket pattern, Kelly wrote:

Row 1: please explain how the 2dc-cluster works? How do I keep it all in the same stitch? :-)

I took a close-up picture of clusters in Row 1. The photo shows the following instructions:

(2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster) all in next ch

Remember that a 2-dc cluster is two unfinished dc worked into same space (or same stitch), then finished together.

Here are the step-by-step instructions for it:

1. Yarn over, insert hook in stitch, draw yarn through the stitch, yarn over, draw through 2 loops on the hook. You now have 2 loops on the hook left.

2.  Yarn over, insert hook in same stitch, draw yarn through the stitch, yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook. You now have 3 loops on the hook. 

3. Yarn over, pull loop through all 3 loops on hook. Your 2-dc cluster is made!


  1. The green looks so lovely and the picture says it all for the instructions.

  2. Nice color ! And great pattern !
    Have a nice week !

  3. A very beautiful cover!
    Bye, bye Elli

  4. I think you would be a fabulous instructor, Hope they have said yes.

  5. How is the second row done? How many do I chain when moving onto second row. Sorry for the basic question im a beginner in crochetting. Btw beautiful pattern and blanket.

    1. Hi, sorry I can't photograph and make tutorial of each row. It takes lots and lots of time.
      This is an advanced level pattern, and if you are a beginner, this is probably not the best pattern to start. I have some other free baby blanket patterns on my blog, much easier ones, you can check them out here:

  6. Thank you , Olga! I'll have a look!
