Tricolor Square block
I find this Block in 200 Crochet blocks for blankets, throws, and afghans by Jan Eaton. I really like this book, I get majority of my blocks from this book.
This block is a little bit more difficult. I find that if you have lots of patience you can do this block. I am not an expert on crocheting and only have been crocheting for two years now
