Comments

It's not "-1 sp." It's "ch-1 sp," which means that you must have previously done a ch 1 between two stitches of some sort. So what it means in the parenthesis is "make a slip stitch in the first ch-1 space."

sk = skip. So it reads (Ch 2, skip 1 dc, cluster in next ch-1 sp).

Hope this helps!
Hi
I would not know that. All I can tell you is that Red Heart Super Saver is a worsted weight yarn. If you follow the link to the page on Red Heart Super Saver yarn, you'll see the details about this particular yarn and then you should be able to match it up to a comparable yarn in the UK.
