Here is the Sensational Sampler Square #5. Use an H hook and block to 8". I add a dc border in Ecru around it after blocking which brought it to 9". Remember that these squares can be used for more than a lapghan or afghan. Use them for potholders (sew two together), dishcloths, washcloths, shawls, scarves - all depending on the yarn you choose and the way you join them together. Have fun with them!
