General Notations: A cluster st at beginning of each round is made as follows: ch 3 (to count as 1 d c), 2 more d c in same space, keeping last loop of each d c on hook, thread over and work off all loops at one time (this completes a cluster st at beginning of the round).

The regular cluster sts through 1st 12 rounds of doily are made as follows: 3 d c in same space keeping last loop of each d c on hook, thread over and work off all loops at one time.
