There are lots of tutorials out there on how to cross stitch on crochet. But I didn’t love the method for using a plain single crochet.
Have you ever tried to cross stitch on your crochet piece?
I always found the traditional method kind of hard to get perfect and end up with straight clean columns and rows.
So when I wanted to design a cross stitch / crochet hybrid pattern, I knew I was going to have to get creative.
Enter the single crochet cluster stitch pattern, well…at least one variation anyway.
This stitch pattern creates a beautiful little grid that reminds me a lot of the canvas you get for cross stitching into.
So check out the video tutorial below and let me know if you like this or the traditional method best!

What's to love about the cross stitching on a single crochet cluster panel?
I love this stitch for multiple reasons…
- It’s a very easy stitch pattern to learn.
- The fabric created is very nice with a nice texture that could stand alone if you wanted.
- The little gaps created by working this stitch pattern are just absolutely perfect for cross stitching into!
