Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times in ring. Yoh and draw through all loops on hook – 3 dc cluster made. Ch 2. Rep from * 3 times more.  Join with sl st to top of ch 3.  5 clusters.

2nd Rnd: Sl st in next st and next ch-2 sp. (Ch 3. 2 dc cluster. Ch 2. 3 dc cluster. Ch 2) all in same sp. *(3 dc cluster. Ch 2. 3 dc cluster. Ch 2) all in next ch-2 sp. Rep from * around. Join with sl st to top of ch 3.

Ch 2) all in next ch-2 sp. 3 dc cluster in next ch-2 sp. Ch 2. Skip next ch-2 sp.** 3 dc cluster in next ch-2 sp. Ch 2. Rep from * around, ending final rep at **. Join with sl st to top of ch 3.
 
5th Rnd: Sl st in next st and next ch-2 sp. (Ch 3. 2 dc cluster. Ch 2) in same sp. 3 dc cluster in next ch-2 sp. Ch 2. *(3 dc cluster. Ch 2. 3 dc cluster. Ch 4. 3 dc cluster. Ch 2. 3 dc cluster. Ch 2) all in next ch-4 sp. (3 dc cluster in next ch-2 sp. Ch 2) twice. Skip next ch-2 sp.** (3 dc cluster in next ch-2 sp. Ch 2) twice. Rep from * around, ending final rep at **.
