Above is the original, made with 2 colors of With Love. Below is my version, made in my 4 colors of With Love!
My Notes: Once you get going with this square, it’s easy to see how each round follows the next! Changing where you change colors – or if! – will give lots of different looks with this block.
Helpful Links and Tutorials: Crochet Abbreviations; Magic Circle; Post Stitches; Seamless Finishing.
Sizing: I did need to add one extra round for size, so I added one more Rnd 19 rep before making the final round. Everyone’s gauge and tension level are different so be sure to measure as you go. 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.
What I Did: I used a Furls US-J, 6.0 mm hook and Red Heart With Love, and my color scheme was as follows:
Rnd 1: Eggshell
Rnd 2: Lettuce
Rnd 3: Eggshell
Rnd 4: Lettuce
Rnd 5: Eggshell
Rnd 6: Lettuce
Rnd 7: Eggshell
Rnd 8: Tangerine
Rnd 9: Eggshell
Rnd 10: Tangerine
Rnd 11: Eggshell
Rnd 12: Tangerine
Rnd 13: Eggshell
Rnd 14: Celtic
Rnd 15: Eggshell
Rnd 16: Celtic
Rnd 17: Eggshell
Rnd 18: Celtic
Rnd 19: Eggshell
Rnd 20: Celtic
Extra Rnd: Eggshell
Rnd 21: Lettuce
This square benefited from a moderate blocking. To block this square, I used the wet blocking method, or you could use light steam.

Hi, Thank you so much for this CAL, unfortunately, the pattern is not available through your link at this time.
Hi Kathey! We had to do a deep update on the blog to fix it, but the correct link should load now! Please do a hard refresh of the page if you don’t get the new version! 🙂
Very excited to join! Glad I found this! thank you!
I finished Block 1. It has a precise written instruction and a helpful video. Really appreciate the designer Jessie of block#1.
I saw a few of the blocks of the Moogly 2021 cal and fell in love straight away.
Is there a way to get the pattern of all the blocks simultaneously or do I need to look for them one by one?
Thanks in advance
Hi Anita! You’ll find them all listed here: https://www.mooglyblog.com/cal-2021-24/ 🙂 Thank you!
