A new year and a new Moogly Block CAL and this year I went with a 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.

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. So maybe I'll just stick with a crochet version for now lol.

Want to see how this looks with different colors? Check it out on Moogly.

#### 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.
