Instructions: How to make a 3TR cluster
 
1: Begin with a loop on your hook. Wrap your yarn around the hook (called yarning over) twice.
2: Insert your hook in the stitch of the previous row, yarn over and pull the yarn through the stitch.
3: Yarn over and pull the yarn through 2 loops. Do this again. This leaves you with 2 loops on the hood, the loop from the stitch before and the last loop of the first treble.
4: Repeat Steps 2 and 3. You now have 3 loops on the hook.
5: Repeat Steps 2 and 3 once more. You now have 4 loops on the hook.
6: Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops. Your 3 treble cluster is complete. 
Rnd 10: 3CH, 3TR cluster in next ST, *1 DC in next ST, 3TR cluster in next ST. Repeat from *until end of round. (30 cluster made)
