Could you make a tutorial? I'm a visual learner )

Really wanted to make this bought the yarn hook. But the pattern doesn't make sense - if anyone has actually completed this please let me know if the instructions are correct

Can't figure out the cluster - there is no dc in this row

This is a very beautiful christening or shower blanket and booties for a baby girl or baby boy. The baby's mom will especially be in awe of this carefully crocheted baby blanket that will be admired by any new mommy who will see this work of art. This will be be forever treasured by the family and will definitely form part of the family heirloom. Thanks for the pattern.

Tried this craft? What did you think?

How do I make a cluster?

Hi Lizzie, Each cluster stitch is a little different depending on the specific project. For this project, the cluster stitch is explained in Rnd 6 of the baby booties: (Yoh and draw up a loop. Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times in next dc. Yoh and draw through all loops on hook cluster made. Hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

Even with the editor's explanation I remain confused as to the cluster. There are no dc to anchor a stitch.

In answer to another post saying this is not a pattern for a baby because of the open holes , let me say this. I don't think it was intended as a bed or crib blanket. It is meant to be used when baby is dressed and going out, like a christening or a special event. It is too pretty to just use on a bed.

This is perfect for a christening or baby shower gift. Good thing for crocheters the pattern is just right on the same page. I will pin this set for baby.

This is certainly a beautiful blanket but not for a baby! Fingers and toes will get caught in the big holes!
