The Deetra Basket – Free Crochet Pattern

  1. Is there an error on row 17? Says cluster and skip next stitch. Should that be sc or dc or chain 1? If you skip it you have a count of 45 not 90.

    1. Hey there! I’m not sure I understand your question, the Stitch count for round 17 says 45 clusters, not 90. ☺️
