Treble treble cluster. Wrap yarn around hook 3 times, then insert yarn into and bring up loop. Wrap yarn round and bring through 2 loops 3 times but before you finish the stich. You repeat the pattern again. Wrap around 3 times and insert into next loop over.  When you have done this 3 times you will yarn over and pull through all loops on your hook to close off stich brining the top of the 3 stiches together.  This is a cluster.
