what is the purpose of the Special Abbreviation "Cluster"? I do not see it used anywhere. Am I missing something?

The pattern shown for these mitts does not match the picture. I was very disappointed.

Hi yvonneianc--Thanks for your comment. Do you mean the instructions are wrong or that your piece didn't turn out like the photo? Since it calls for a multi-colored yarn, your mitts will look different from the photo based on where you start the yarn, meaning the colors and the color pattern will look different. Please let us know if you find the pattern to be unclear, as we can easily check it against the original source. Thanks so much--FaveCrafts Editors
