When you make the cluster, you have 3 partially-completed dc together but they all come together into one stitch (when you yoh and draw through all 4 loops); that is, when you look at the chain-like stitches along the top of the row, you will seen only one stitch for the cluster (not a stitch for each dc within the cluster). On the following row, sc into that one stitch at the top of the cluster.

[The following will need to be seen using a NON-proportional font such as Courier in order for symbols/characters to line up correctly. Copy and paste into a word processor and change font if necessary to see.]

If I can try to draw crochet symbols using text characters, where a regular dc is symbolized as

|
~
|

an ordinary group of 3 dc would look something like this:

_ _ _
| | |
~ ~ ~
| | |

Notice the top of the row will show 3 separate stitches as indicated by the underscores.

A cluster of 3 dc would look more like this:

_
/|\
~ ~ ~
/ | \

Notice there is only one stitch (underscore) at the top of the row, because you finished off all 3 dcs together.
