See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagram A.2 shows how the squares are laid out when sewn together.

To get a neat transition when changing colours, work the last slip stitch on the round with the new colour as follows: Insert the hook into the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round, pick up the new strand, make a yarn over with the new colour and pull it through the loops on the hook.
