It is the penultimate square for 2017 – one of my favorite words. And this is going to be a lot of people’s favorite square! I’m so happy to share MooglyCAL Block #23, courtesy of my friend Kara at Petals to Picots!

This pattern is wonderfully written, and fun to crochet – a very satisfying square indeed!
My square was coming out just a hair too small, so I added one more round of single crochet, just like the last round of the written pattern. That got me right to 12″ when blocked. But everyone’s gauge and tension level are different so be sure to measure as you go, and check your gauge. Learn how to adjust for size HERE to make sure all your squares are the same size. Remember that the 12″ is measured across and up and down – not diagonally corner to corner.
I used a Furls Odyssey hook and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, and my color scheme was as follows – Rnd 1-4: Rose Shocking; Rnd 5-6: Lemon; Rnd 7: Radiant Lime; Rnd 8: Aquamarine; Rnd 9: Aqua; Rnd 10: Radiant Lime; Rnd 11: Aquamarine; Rnd 12: Radiant Lime; Rnd 13: Silver Grey; Extra Rnd: Silver Grey.
