Hi there! Today's Stitch Tutorial is on this Cluster Cross Granny Stitch. When I initially made a video for this stitch, I used it in my Crochet Maya Cardigan. The stitch book I learned this stitch book did not provide a name so I didn't know what it was called! For some reason, I didn't make a post for the Granny Square itself although it was in the Cardigan pattern. So here it is.... two years later!!!
