Cute!  Nice job!  I would never have the patience to make and connect all those small pieces and hide all those yarn ends.

This is my favorite:


Looks like this:

I did another one in burgundy that just didn't scan well.  It's really pretty.

The rule that I figured out that never seems to be in any of the crochet how-to's is that with sc, you chain one and sc in the same stitch.  With dc, you chain 3 and dc in the next stitch, the chain 3 counts as the first dc.  Same with trc. 

I find it hard to distinguish the last stitch with some yarns and do the same thing you did.  There's a beautiful afghan in my stash with sc, ch1, sc, that keeps growing wider.  I find that I do much better with more obvious patterns.

I'm not convinced that it's crochet.  I looked at some of the other swatches on that website and a couple that were labeled crochet were definitely not crochet--in fact, they looked like knit.  The pattern in the dye doesn't look quite right for it to be crochet either.  At least, it doesn't look yarn-dyed.

If it is crochet, it could be a variation of the ripple. 

It's pretty. Good luck finding it or figuring it out.

Are you double crocheting in the same stitch as your turning chain?  That will cause an increase. 

More likely, your starting chain is too tight.  You can fix this a couple of ways.  Use a larger hook for the starting chain, or use a base sc to start.  The base sc will be stretchy, unlike when you sc in a simple chain.  In this case, I'd just use a larger hook.  But, here are the instructions in case you ever need them for the base chain/sc.

This is from a Lion Brand pattern: 

Base Ch/Sc
Note This technique eliminates too-tight base chains that choke up or too-loose ones that
sag. It creates a base chain and foundation row of sc at the same time easy, sturdy and
elastic, quite an elegant solution, especially useful for necklines and waistlines.
Begin with a slip knot, chain two, insert hook in second chain from hook, draw up a loop,
yarn over, draw through one loop, yarn over and draw through two loops. You have one
single crochet with its own chain at the bottom. Work next stitch under loops of that
chain. Insert hook under two loops at the bottom of previous stitch, draw up a loop, yarn
over and draw through one loop, yarn over and draw through two loops. Repeat for
length of foundation.
