    Here is a website/link that can help you learn a cluster stitch and more. This woman, Teresa created all of these small videos where she demonstrates stitches and other how to crochet project...go to the link and in the search box on the right type in cluster stich and you will find the is s helpful...I recently got a pattern for a poncho that I am making for my niece and it said front and back loop only and I was like "WHAT?" so I went to Teresa videos and found it and I figured it out.

    I have never been a materialistic person; rather a giving!
    I am also cutting back; recycling more; I wash out my zip-lock bags; I use reuseable bags when I shop and or paper; we never buy paper plates or anything like that an believe it or not I use the dishwasher more because it is energy efficient and I use less water doing dishes.

    Good luck with learn te cluster stitch and if you can't find the video let me know and I will see if I can help you.
