NOTE: This Round makes no sense since it appears you end up one cluster short at the beginning of the round

2nd row: Sl st in next sp, ch 4, 2-tr cluster in first sp, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in same sp, ch 3, skip next sp, tr in next cb-4- sp, ch 3, skip next sp, 4-tr cluster in next sp, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in same sp. Turn.

3rd row: Sl st in next sp, ch 4, and complete cluster in first sp as before, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in same sp, ch 3, skip next 2 sps, 4-tr cluster in next sp, ch 3, 3-tr cluster in same sp. Turn.

4th row: Sl st in next sp, ch 4, and complete cluster in 1st sp as before, ch 3, make a 4-tr cluster in same sp, ch 1, skip next sp, in next sp make cluster, ch 3 and cluster. Turn.

5th row: Sl st in next sp, ch 4, make a 3-tr cluster in same sp, make a 3-tr in next ch 3 sp, ch 4, sc in same sp, (ch 4, sc in next sp on side of Scallop) 4 times.

SECOND SCALLOP - 1st row; Sc in next sp, ch 4, make a 3-tr cluster in same sp, eh 3, make a 4-tr cluster in same sp, ch 4, (tr in next ch-1 sp, ch l) 8 times; tr in next ch-1 sp, ch 4, in next ch-3 sp between clusters make a 4-tr cluster, ch 3 and a 3-tr cluster. Turn.

2nd row: Sl st in next sp, ch 4, make a 2-tr cluster in same sp, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in same sp, ch 4, tr in first ch-1 sp, tr in next ch-1 sp, (ch 1, tr in next ch-1 sp) 5 times; tr in next ch-1 sp, ch 4, 4-tr cluster in next ch-3 sp, ch 3, 4-tr cluster it same sp. Turn.

3rd row: Sl st in next sp, ch 4 and complete cluster in first ch-3 sp as before, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in same sp, ch 4, tr in first ch-1 sp, tr in next ch-1 sp, (ch 1, tr in next ch-1 sp) twice; tr in last ch-1 sp, ch 4, 4-tr cluster in next ch 3 sp between clusters, ch 3, 3-tr cluster, in same sp. Turn.

4th row: Sl st in next sp, ch 4, make 2-tr cluster in first ch-3 sp, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in sane sp, ch 3, tr in first ch-1 sp, tr in next ch-1 sp, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in next ch-3 sp between clusters, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in same sp. Turn.

5th row: Sl st in next sp, ch 4 and complete cluster in first ch-3 sp as before, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in sane sp,skip 2 sps, 4-tr cluster in next sp between clusters, ch 3, 3-tr cluster in same sp. Turn.

6th row: Sl st in next sp, make a 3-tr cluster in first ch-3 sp, and a 3-tr cluster in next ch-3 sp. Turn. (Ch 4, sc in next ch-3 sp between clusters on side of scallop) 6 times; sc in next sp, ch4, make a 3-tr cluster in same sp, ch 3, 4-tr cluster in same sp and complete this scallop as before. Work scallops over corresponding parts as established. Break off.
