Why learn the linked double crochet cluster?
The diagonal spike stitch is such a simple and easy way to vary a large panel of double crochet.
If you’re like me, you get a little bored when doing a large piece, like maybe a blanket, that is just nothing but double crochet.
You can use this stitch to add some texture. Maybe every other row, or do 2 rows of each alternating.
Hooray for texture!
In about 7 minutes, you will be on your way to significantly improving your crochet life! Just grab a hook and some yarn and watch the video tutorial for this amazing crochet stitch below!
