I had that same problem with my first granny blankie. If you made a bunch of squares, connected them, and are now putting a border around them, I know the problem Tongue

When you get to a spot where two squares are connected, don't put a cluster in each of the adjoining gaps. Put one dc in the first gap, then one in the second gap, and on the next row, you'll treat the pair of dc as a cluster.
