How to crochet Forked Clusters Stitch

The forked clusters stitch has 2 legs (in which multiple loops are pulled up). The legs are joined at the top of the stitch. This creates an organized and open structure. The stitch looks identical on both sides of your work. The video also contains the crochet chart.

I will explain how to crochet 2 rows. You can continue working by repeating row 2. Start with a multiple of 3 stitches + 2 stitches (and add 3 chains for the foundation chain).
