This mosaic crochet square uses mostly single crochet. Double crochets are worked into the front loops of stitches a couple of rows down to create this fun effect. 

Sizing: As written, my square was turning out a little big, I had planned on omitting the final 2 rounds because of this.  Once I put it on my blocking mats, however, I realized I needed to do one more round. 

Here’s What I did: I will outline my color changes and any notes I have for each row below.

Note the hook size Tonya used for this square was 5.5mm. I used the 5.5 mm for my square, but I think if I had done the 5mm I would have been able to squeeze in all the rounds. It’s up to you which hook you will use. 

Rnd 1-2: Buff

Rnd 3-4: Tea Leaves

Rnd 5-6: Buff

Rnd 7-8: Real Teal

Rnd 9-10: Buff

Rnd 11-12: Tea Leaves

Rnd 13-14: Cafe Latte

Rnd 15-16: Real Teal

Rnd 17-18: Cafe Latte

Rnd 19-20: Tea Leaves – I used just single crochet for both rounds as I thought they would be my last ones.

Rnd 21: Cafe Latte – Final round of just single crochet

Rnd 22: I omitted this round. 

Remember though, you are working on YOUR blanket. If you don’t want to change color where I did, then please don’t. My notes and color changes below are not hard and fast rules.
