Similar Crochet Techniques - Different Name, Different Purpose -Crochet Decrease vs. Crochet Cluster - Crochet Tip #62

The crochet decrease may be similar or the same as a cluster of stitches.  Keep in mind that you can decrease by skipping stitches as well, but with this tip we are addressing the stitches joined at the top. The purpose of the stitch is what will make them different, while the anatomy and structure of the stitch may be identical.  It is something to keep in mind and to help prevent confusion.  I am providing two video examples.  The first is the Double Crochet Decrease.  The second is the crochet cluster.  A cluster can consist of a couple stitches to many stitches.
