Cluster Tablecloth

MATERIALS:
J. & P. COATS OR CLARK'S O.N.T. BEST SIX CORD MERCERIZED CROCHET, Size 50 (White only), Small Ball: J. & P. COATS--52 balls, or CLARK'S O.N.T.-82 balls
Steel Crochet Hook No. 12.
Approx. Size 60"x80"
GAUGE: Motif measures 2 3/8 inches square.
FIRST MOTIF: Starting at center, ch 10. Join with sl st.
1st rnd: Ch 1, 20 sc in ring. Sl st in 1st sc.
2nd rnd: Ch 6, * tr in next sc, ch 2. Repeat from * around. Sl st in 4th st of ch-6 (20 sps) .
3rd rnd: Sc in same place as sl st, * ch 5, sc in next tr. Repeat from * around. Sl st in 1st sc.
4th rnd: Sl st in next ch, sl st in loop, ch 4, holding back on hook the last loop of each tr make 4 tr in same loop, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (cluster made) ; * ch 5, dc in next loop, ch 5, make a 5-tr cluster in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-5 to tip of 1st cluster.
5th mod: Sl st in next 2 ch, sc in loop, * ch 7, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Sl st in 1st sc.
6th rnd: Sl st in next 3 ch, sc in loop, * ch 5, dc in next loop, ch 5, in next loop make (5-tr cluster, ch 7) twice and 5-tr cluster (this is corner). Ch 5, dc in next loop, (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice. Repeat from * around. Join and break off.
SECOND MOTIF: Work as for First Motif until 5 rnds are completed.
6th rnd: Sl st in next 3 ch, sc in loop, ch 5, dc in next loop. Ch 5, in next loop make 5-tr cluster, ch 7 and 5-tr cluster; ch 3, sc in corresponding loop of First Motif, ch 3, cluster in same place as last cluster on Second Motif, ch 2, sc in next loop of First Motif, ch 2, dc in next loop on Second Motif. Complete as for First Motif, joining next 5 loops as before. Make 26 rows of 34 motifs, joining adjacent sides as Second Motif was joined to First Motif.
EDGING: Attach thread to 1st free loop on corner motif, ch 7, sc in next loop, ch 7; (5-tr cluster in next loop, ch 4, sl st in top of cluster—picot—ch 5) twice; 5-tr cluster in next loop, picot; (ch 7, sc in next loop) 4 times; * ch 7, (cluster in next loop, picot, ch 5) twice; cluster in next loop, picot; (ch 7, sc in next loop) twice; ch 9, skip joining, sc in next loop, ch 7, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join and break off.
