I want to make this, but the terminology is austrailian.
I have no idea what cluny group  or double treble is. Im used to the "american" terms.
Can someone translate it for me?

any help?
Rad pattern eh? I cant wait to make one!

Very nice afghan!  I bookmarked it and may try it sometime.

I just sent the designer an e-mail to ask her how many times she wraps her yarn for the double treble.  When, and if, I hear back I'll let you know.

That is lovely - The cluny group is defined in the pattern (4 double treble into ring, leaving all loops on hook, now pull wool through all 5 loops (1 cluny group made)).

As for the double treble here is a Aus site with details of it http://www.craftmall.com.au/classes/crochetlesson1.html and another one http://www.patons.biz/knitting_info/double_treble.htm.

Basically it is wrap yarn around twice before going through the stitch.

So if I read this correctly, the australian double treble is the same thing as the American triple crochet.  It looks like the Australian instructions don't have a single crochet, that's interesting!

Most likely yes - Australian/UK instructions don't have a single crochet, what the US call a single crochet is called a double crochet in Aus/UK terms. That is the only one I can always remember Smiley, above that I need to check how many times to wrap the yarn around no matter which terms are used Smiley.

I just heard back from the designer, Sarah London, and she's either a member here or reads the board because, even though I didn't tell her, she knew I was a member of Craftster!  Cheesy

She said, yes, you wrap the yarn twice for the double treble.

That is GORGEOUS! 

I'm going to have to try this sometime, too, and thanks for the other great and informative links.  (I'm new here and poking my nose in and around interesting sounding topics hoping I can add something, but here... I can add nothing but my thanks for the info and shiny new pattern).
