Welcome to the December Featured Throw of the Month! This month we have the Dancing Snowmen Throw made in Super Saver. Each month we have a new themed throw as a featured free pattern. Each throw will have a tip or two in the blog, as well as a giveaway to win the yarn to make the throw. Keep reading for the tip and to access the giveaway! Use the hashtag #throwmonth to talk about the series.
The 2-tr Cl (2 treble crochet cluster) seems difficult, but it is a variation of working two treble crochet stitches into the same stitch.
To start the stitch, yarn over twice, then put the hook into the indicated stitch and pull up a loop. You will have four loops on your hook.
Next, yarn over and draw through two loops on the hook. Then yarn over and draw through two loops on the hook a second time. You will now have two loops on the hook, and have partially worked a treble crochet stitch.
Start over, and yarn over twice, then put the hook into the indicated stitch and pull up a loop. You will have five loops on your hook: 4 of the loops are like the first step, and then the fifth hook is from the partially-completed treble crochet.
Yarn over and draw through two loops on the hook, and then do it again. You will have three loops on your hook.
Finally, yarn over and draw through all three loops on your hook.
The two-treble cluster is in the middle of this picture, in a row of regular treble crochet stitches.
