this is not an easy pattern, very confusing. What is a leg in crochet?

Hi there, It appears as though Caron, the authors of this pattern, are breaking down this design into parts, and a leg is just their terminology for the parts. Thanks!

I'm soooo confused. Only at row 2 and not sure WHERE to insert into "cluster" . Pattern says insert hook in same cluster...ok, where in cluster of (dc, ch 2, dc) - into ch2 or in previous row where cluster was started? I really think someone should sit down, attempt to work this as written, then rewrite it.

Hi Mckinsey: This pattern was direct from Caron yarns. I can't seem to find their pattern online anymore to double check the accuracy, but maybe you can post your question to our Facebook group at facebook.com/allfreecrochetafghanpatterns to see if anyone else has worked this up or has any ideas on how to proceed. Good luck! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

I have not made this although it is very pretty-it does not sound like it should be labeled easy.
