    Hi Karen – just a little behind in my CAL work. I have a question – I am using a lighter weight yarn for a baby blanket sampler. How large should I make each square? Should it be a true square or as large as the template in the getting started sheet?

      Hi Joann!

      You should make the squares the same size as that template. That is what the entire CAL is based on, unless you are planing to modify the size to something different that I have stated in the original document. Make sense?
