identify crochet stitch/pattern help?

Not sure if this is allowed, but my mom found this beautiful crochet afghan photo on facebook and is trying to work out a pattern for it. Can anyone identify which type of stitches these are? Or know of a similar pattern? It would be so appreciated. Thanks in advance!

That's the Catherine Wheel stitch. I've found a couple of tutorials online:

I hope these help. I love that pattern.

If following the directions through the first link, be careful. There are some typos and missing instructions.

First Row should be *skip 3 ch, 7 dc into next ch, skip 3 ch, 1 sc into each of next 3 ch, rep from *

Fifth Row is missing the first asterisk which should be right before the first skip 3 ch.

If you can, follow the diagram, it is correct.

Look up Bavarian Crochet, too. It looks similar but has a slightly different texture.
