This pattern is a challenging one – not for those who want it easy! But it is worth the work – and truthfully, it’s easier than it looks! I urge you to read the Notes before you begin crocheting – it will save you a lot of confusion. To change colors, I just finished off each previous color, then joined the new color to the first stitch of the previous rnd.

This one came out to 12″ for me as written. 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 US-J, 6.0 mm hook and Red Heart With Love, and my color scheme was as follows – Rnd 1-8: Holly Berry; Rnd 9-10: Lettuce; Rnd 11: Tigerlily; Rnd 12-13: Iced Aqua; Rnd 14: Hot Pink; Rnd 15: Fruit Punch.
This square benefited from a mild blocking. To block this square, I used the wet blocking method and a Chetnanigans BlocksAll Ultra blocking board and Perfecting Strips.
