Monstera Leaf Crochet Square Free Colorwork Pattern

Sharing is caring!

A Fun colorwork project featuring the Monstera Crochet Square. I am what you would call a want-to-be plant lady. I love the look of plants for home decor, but I tend to not be the best plant mom. So a crochet monstera leaf is one that I can keep alive.

Usually, when my plants start to look a little pathetic, I release them into the wild. I'm lucky that pretty much anything grows in Florida so nature has revived so many of my mistakes. Keep on reading below for the the monstera leaf crochet pattern free.

Monstera Crochet Square Pattern Notes

  • The stitches for the color portion of this pattern are all done in single crochet. Each color is represented by a letter. Color A is white and Color B is green. Example (A) x 7 = single crochet 7 stitches with color A (white)
  • After the end of each row turn. It is not necessary to chain 1 at the beginning of each row, simply work right into the first st.
  • Since there is a wrong side and a right side to the square, I used a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the color work. Experiment and see what works best for you.
