This type of cluster is used in the Half Daisy Edging Pattern and the Cluny Afghan Panel/Lace Insertion Pattern.

Abbreviations:
st = stitch
sts = stitches
tr = treble

For a treble (tr), the yarn or thread is wrapped around the hook 2 times before beginning the stitch. How To Do A Treble

Cluster:

To make a 3 tr cluster: Wrap yarn or thread around hook 2 times before beginning the stitch, insert hook in stitch, pull a loop through, wrap yarn over hook and draw through two loops, (there are now three loops remaining on the hook), yarn over hook and draw through two loops (leave remaining loop of the treble on the hook, which makes a total of two loops on the hook). Photo at left shows the treble crocheted, with the last loop of the treble left on the hook.

Working in the same stitch, make a second treble (leave the last loop of this treble on the hook also). At this point, there are 3 loops on the hook. Photo at left shows two trebles crocheted in a same stitch, with the last loop of each treble left on the hook.

Working in the same stitch, make a third treble (leave the last loop of this treble on the hook also). Photo at left shows three trebles crocheted in a same stitch, with the last loop of each treble left on the hook. At this point, there are 4 loops on the hook.

Wrap yarn or thread over the hook and pull a loop through the 4 remaining loops on the hook all at once. This completes the cluster.

Two patterns that use the 3 tr cluster:
Half Daisy Edging Pattern
Cluny Afghan Panel/Lace Insertion Pattern
