I am an avid knitter but fairly new to crochet. I am trying to crochet the Vanna 8-color afghan found at www.lionbrand.com. The pattern says that it is easy, but I am incredibly confused (and in danger of pulling all of my hair out) as to how to make cluster stitches in the round.
I’ve been watching some videos online and think that I have basically figured out how to do a cluster stitch on the straight. I have no idea how to do one in the round, though.
First of all, when I do the four ch stitches to begin the cluster row, do I do these ch stitches in the loop I just made with the joining sl stitch?
Now when I’m doing the cluster, do I skip the four chain stitches and do all of the triple stitches in the 5th stitch (aka the first stitch in my original chain) or do I do one in each of the stitches in my new chain? The videos seem somewhat confusing to me.
Then when I finish the cluster stitch, how do I advance around the circle?
As you can see, this is one confused kitten. Any help would be appreciated.
