This pattern stitch will work for an afghan or scarf.

Abbreviations
CL - Cluster
DC - Double Crochet
CH - Chain

Cluster - Wrap the yarn over your hook, insert through the chain/stitch. Pull yarn through, wrap the yarn over the hook. Pull through 2 loops. Leave the remaining 2 loops on the hook. Wrap the yarn over the hook, insert through the chain/stitch. Pull yarn through, wrap the yarn over the hook. Pull through 2 loops. There will be 3 loops on the crochet hook. Wrap the yarn over the hook and pull through all 3 loops to complete the cluster.

Cluster Set - This is 3 cluster stitches with a chain 1 between.
Multiple: 10 + 7

I have used a chain of 37 with the swatch example

Row 1: Work 1 DC in the 4th CH from the hook. Work 1 DC in each of the next 3 chains. Skip 2 chains. *Work a cluster(2 Double Crochet Joined), CH 1, Cluster, CH 1, Cluster all in the same chain. Skip 2 chains. Work 1 DC in each of the next 5 Chains. Repeat from * across for the width, ending with the 5 double crochet on the edge.

Row 2: Chain 2 or 3, depending on your starting edge preference. I prefer to chain 2, which will eliminate gaps and uneven edges. Work 1 DC in each of the next 4 stitches. *Work a cluster set(See Abbreviations) in the top center stitch of the cluster set below. Work 1 double crochet in each of the next 5 stitches. Repeat across from * for the width.

Continue with Row 2 for the length of the piece you are making.
