STITCH EXPLANATIONS: 

beg-Cl (beg 3 double crochet cluster)
Ch 2, yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook); yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Cl (3 double crochet cluster)
Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook), *yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; rep from * once more, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook.
 
NOTES:
1. Afghan is worked in one piece in joined rnds with RS always facing.
2. The yarn color is changed by fastening off the old color and joining the new color. Be sure to leave yarn tails when changing color! You can work over the yarn tails to hide them, or weave them in after you’ve finished crocheting.
3. For those who find a visual helpful, we've included a stitch diagram.
