8th Row – Ch 5, turn, 1 tr over last 1-ch space of last row, (1 tr over next 1-ch space) twice, and 2 tr over end ch, holding the final loop of each of these 5 tr on hook, thread over and pull through all 6 loops on hook at once. Fasten off, leaving a 10-inch thread hanging to use in sewing Blocks together.

Filet Corners - Repeat 1st Row of “Cluster Corner” on opposite side of center Oval.

2nd Row – Turn, 1 sl st in last 7 sts of 11-ch, ch 5, 1 dc in next tr, * ch 2, 1 dc in next 3d ch st, (ch 2, 1 dc in next 2d st) 3 times. Repeat from * 3 times, I tr in next 5th ch st.

sewing Blocks together.

Make four of these Small Blocks and sew together to form a Large Block. The Cluster Corners form the center design of Large Block, while the Filet Corners form the corners. Tack the other corners of Small Blocks together by the p at tip of ends of Oval.

Make 80 Large Blocks.

On tissue paper, draw a true square about an inch larger than finished Block. Stretch and pin Block right-side-down on this pattern on a padded ironing board and steam with a wet cloth and hot iron, then press through a dry cloth until perfectly dry. A Spread pressed in
this way will keep its shape and flatness indefinitely.

BORDER - With Yellow, (ch 3, 3 dc in 1st st, ch 2, 1 sl st in same 1st st) 4 times, 1 sl st at base of 1st petal, ch 3, remove hook. Let this
3-ch lie up back of 1st petal, insert hook in 2d dc of 1st petal, catch loop and pull through. * Ch 7, 3 dc in 3d st from hook, ch 2, 1 sl st in
same st, (ch 3, 3 dc in 1st st of 3-ch, ch 2, 1 sl st in same st) twice, sk last 3 petals, 1 sl st in next ch st connecting Flowers, ch 2, 1 dc in
same st, sk 2 sts of connecting ch between Flowers, 1 sl st in next.

Now pass previous Flower over working thread, and make 1 dc in same st with last dc. This dc will be on left side of connecting ch. Ch
2, 1 sl st in same st with dc, ch 6, remove hook. Let this ch lie across back of Flower to opposite side. Insert hook in top of 2d petal, catch
loop and pull through, which brings thread in proper place to continue work. Repeat from * until a length of Flowers long enough to go
across 1 side of Spread is made, allowing exactly 15 Flowers across each Block.

Now make another Flower.

After 4th Petal, ch 5, remove hook, insert in top of next-to-last petal, catch loop and pull through. This forms corner Flower. Repeat from * around Spread, joining end Flowers.

Heading Row Around Inside of Border – Join Cream to side petal of 1 Flower, * (ch 8, 1 sc in side petal of next Flower) repeated to Flower next corner Flower. Ch 2, 1 tr between petals of corner Flower, ch 2, 1 sc in side petal of next Flower. Repeat from * around
Spread. Fasten off.

Edge – Repeat last row on opposite side of Flower Row, except at corners make 8-ch, 1 sc in 1 st petal of corner Flower, ch 11, 1 sc in next petal, ch 8, 1 sc in next Flower. Fasten off.

2nd Row – Join Cream to sc in 1st Flower preceding 1 corner Flower, ch 1, ** 4 sc over next 8-ch, (ch 5, 1 sc in 1st st of 5-ch to form a p) 4 times, 1 sl st at base of 3d p from hook, ch 5, 1 sc in 1st st for a p, 1 sl st at base of next p, 4 sc over balance of 8-ch, 1 sc in next sc, 4 sc over corner 11-ch, (ch 5, 1 sc in 1st st for a p) 6 times, 1 sl st at base of 3d p from hook, (ch 5, 1 sc in 1st st for a p, 1 sl st at base of next p) 3 times, 3 sc over 11-ch. Now make another p-loop just like last one. Then 4 sc over balance of 11-ch, 1 sc in sc, * 4 sc over next 8- ch. Now make a p-loop with 2 ps up each side and 1 at tip. 4 sc over balance of 8-ch, 1 sc in sc, 4 sc over next 8-ch. Make a p-loop with 4 ps up each side and 1 at tip. 4 sc over balance of 8-ch, 1 sc in sc, (4 sc over next 8-ch. Make a p-loop with 6 ps up each side and 1 at tip, 4 sc over balance of 8-ch, 1 sc in sc) twice, 4 sc over next 8-ch. Make a p-loop with 4 ps up each side and 1 at tip, 4 sc over balance of 8- ch, I sc in sc. Repeat from * across to corner. Repeat from ** around Spread. Fasten off.

3rd Row – Join to tip of 1st p-loop of last row, * ch 11, 1 sc in tip of next p-loop, ch 1 3, 1 sc in tip of next, ch 11, 1 sc in tip of next, (ch 9,
I sc in next loop) repeated to next corner. Repeat from * around Spread.

4th Row – * (6 sc, a 4-ch p, and 6 sc) over next 11-ch, 1 sc in sc, (7 sc, p, 7 sc) over corner 13-ch, 1 sc in sc, (6 sc, p, 6 sc) over next 11- ch, 1 sc in sc, (5 sc, p, 5 sc) over each 9-ch loop to next corner. Repeat from * around Spread. Fasten off.

Press Border and sew chs of Heading Row to edge of Blocks.

All done!

  5. there is a better and easier way to show a pattern ,or call it a plan, of a crochet work. it uses loops and bars as symbol to represent the pattern. its much more simpler

  6. I’m having problems with the cluster corners. Has anyone made this yet? If so, is there a re-write for this pattern anywhere? I would love to make one for my sons upcoming wedding.
    if so please respond to:
