Let's start with a 3 rows of 9 single crochets across.
The cluster is similar to the popcorn stitch.
Triple crochet once in next two sc.
YO three times. Stick your needle in the loops and YO and draw through.two loopa.
Yo and draw through two loops again. You should have two loops left on your needle. This is called HALF FINISH.
Now YO three more times and half finish a triple crochet in the next single crochet.
Half finish two more times. You will have a bunch of loops on your needle when you are done.
Now to make it a cluster. YO and draw through allllll the loops at the same time.
There you go. I am not accepeting emails write now. I am in France. So if the instructions aren't quite right, I am sorry. I thought you might like them before I leave. When I come back, I will check them over for accuracy.
However right now, you are smart enough to figure it out. This is the basics of a cluster. Adapt it to your needs. I do suggest looking at the shell and popcorn stitch to make sure you aren't doing that stitch by mistake. Good luck and enjoy!!!!
