Begin with a magic circle.

Round 1: ch3 (counts as 1st dc), dc 15 into the magic ring, join with sc to
3rd ch of the first stitch.

After the first round your crochet will look like this.

Round 2: {ch3 (counts as 1st dc), dc 2 and close (counts as first 3dc cluster), ch 1}, *3dc cluster into the stitch in round 1, chain 1 )* 15 times , join with sc to 3rd ch of the first stitch.
