It uses a Double Wrapped Double Crochet Cluster stitch. I came across this stitch in the early 1980’s. There was an advertisement in a craft or crochet magazine, not sure which. A check was sent in the mail to purchase pattern number 1178 from Alice Fowler’s family. When the pattern arrived in the mail there was a catalog included.
Quite a few of Alice Fowler’s beautiful crochet patterns were purchased.
Many of her designs have come off my hook over the past few years, and this little Double Wrapped Double Crochet Cluster Stitch has stuck with me. A few of my designs feature this stitch.

Stacy was waiting for me to finish the Leafy Lace Wrap, she started playing with her new stitch. My heart was filled with joy, when she showed me the 4 day Afghan. It uses the leafy lace stitch.
Later Mary Maxim picked up her design.
