Stitch Definition

[The Cl is comprised of a Dc and Hdc together.]

YO, insert hook into next St, YO and pull up a loop, YO, pull through first 2 loops on hook, YO, insert hook into SAME St, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through all 4 loops on hook. Cluster Completed.

Pattern Notes

When doing the Ch 1, pull up the loop a little higher than you normally would. This helps to not have the first cluster tight and have the seam noticeable.
