*Tip~ You will want the same number of 3Dc Clusters on Top/Bottom and Right/Left. Make sure you double-check this before you move to the next row.
*Tip~For the Granny Strip section you will be turning after each row and no longer working in the round.
Row 7: With non-neutral color – Join with Sl St to Second Stitch from corner (see photo below), Chain 3 (counts as Dc now and throughout) and 2 DC in same stitch,* Sk 2 stitches, 3 Dc in next stitch(3Dc Cluster)*, Repeat ** across, until you reach the last 2 stitches from the next corner(you may be short a stitch and end up with only 1 stitch before the center stitch of the corner. In this case just skip the 1 stitch), 3 Dc in center stitch of the corner, Ch 2, 3 Dc in same stitch(Corner Cluster made), Sk 2 stitches. Repeat 3Dc Clusters, Sk 2 stitches and Corner Cluster, Sk 2 stitches, around. Join to beginning Ch 3 with Sl St. Finish off.
