Color Me Clustered!

Posted by sallenlouise on December 20, 2006

Well, I’m having a heck of a time. I am trying to crochet the Color Wheel pattern……..It’s not going as planned. I know I’m just over looking something. SOMETHING STUPID, I’m sure. Please point out what I’m not seeing. I’m sure my lack of sleep has something to do with this……….but argggggg!
Thanx in advance for any help!!!!

SKILLLEVEL:** Average (HAHAHAHAHA! I’m not feeling that it’s very average at the moment.)

Rnd 1: chain 10, sl st in first ch to form ring, ch
3, 31 dc in ring, join with sl st in top
of ch-3 (32dc).
(This round went smoothly!….hmm, see, I do know a little something about crochet, lol!!!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
NOTES
:For beginning cluster
(beg
cl), ch 3, (yo, insert hook in next st,
yo, draw lp through, yo, draw through
2 lps on hook) 4 times, yo, draw
through all 5 lps on hook.
(OK, got it!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For cluster (cl), yo, insert hook in
same st as last st worked
, yo, draw lp
through, yo, draw through 2 lps on
hook, (yo, insert hook in next st, yo,
draw lp through, yo, draw through 2
lps on hook) 4 times, yo, draw
through all 6 lps on hook.
(Say what??? OK, That gives me two clusters in one stitch. (when working round 2) I don’t think that’s right……also, It can’t be in the last chain of the 6….What am I not seeing here?)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For last cluster
(last cl), yo, insert
hook in same st as last st worked, yo,
draw lp through, yo, draw through 2
. lps on hook, (yo, insert hook in next
st, yo, draw lp through, yo, draw
through 2 lps on hook) 3 times, yo,
insert hook in same st as first st, yo,
draw lp through, yo, draw through 2
lps on hook, yo, draw through all 6
lps on hook.

only, beg cl, ch 6, (cl, ch 6) 6 times,

(Please tell me how to work the clusters so that I can end up with 8……)(I added the next part so that you can see what’s going on.)
