  1. Quick question. What is the DC Cluster?

  2. Jailor, DC Cluster means the stitches are joined at the top. It is really the same as a double crochet decrease too, only it is a cluster of stitches joined at the top while the project is getting larger in size.

  3. This can also be made with Peaches N Cream 100% cotton, correct?

    Yes it can be made with that brand. I prefer the snowflakes with the cotton.

  9. I love this pattern! But When I made it and showed off my proud work my husband said it looked more like a star than a snowflake. So I made a slight Change.... I started with a ch.4
    rnd 1: DC in loop *ch 3, DC* repeat 7 times. Ch.3 & join in beg DC.
    rnd 2: *Ch 4, TC in center of DC, Ch. 3, slst at top of TC, ch. 5, slst at top of TC, ch. 3, slst at top of TC. ch. 4 slst in ch. 3 space. Ch 2, DC in top of DC, ch 2 slst in top of DC, ch. 3 slst in top of DC, ch.2 slst in top of DC, ch 2, slst in ch. 3 space.* Repeat 4 times.

    I just thought I would share this with you =)

  10. Chinah,
    Snowflakes and stars do have a similarity to each other when it come to the points. This is another good example of the flexibility of crochet. Any snowflake pattern can be altered to add an extra point or two or take points away.

  13. I can's get the first round right.
    Joing the last stitch with the first results in a very weird looking wheel. The 6 gaps inbetween aren't evenly shaped :(
    Any advice?

  14. Marinake - Keep practicing. It sounds like it may be some tension. You will get better the more you practice.
