Crochet Side Saddle Cluster Stitch Tutorial

Crochet Regan Slouch Beanie

Happy November! Today's Stitch Tutorial is on this beautiful Side Saddle Cluster Stitch. I designed the Fall Primrose Scarf with this stitch which will be released soon!

I love making scarfs for the boys' teachers for the holidays. I love how quickly it works up and the teachers always love the handcrafted gifts! I'm only one down so I better get on it! I have 4 teachers!

Visit my shops for patterns! Looking for yarn? I've listed so much in my etsy shop this past couple of months! De-stashing is so refreshing but now I have all these skeins in bags waiting for their new home! They're super inexpensive because I just want to get rid of them!

For the yarn I used a bulky weight. This was yarn I found in my stash which has been discontinued (so sad, it's so pretty!)
