  1. Hi KC 🙂 I’m pretty sure Joanita means we are working a dc3tog in the ch3sp as a cluster stitch. So we would Ch 3, *yarn over the hook, insert the hook into the ch3sp, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook** Rep 2 more times into the same ch3sp and then yarn over and pull through all the loops on your hook to complete the dc3tog cluster stitch. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  2. Hi, can you tell me how to start row 2? I am not sure how to leave the loop of each next 3DC on hook. xo
