Note

If you're using stash yarns for the contrast colors, gather 50 balls of yarn, each about 25g or roughly the size of a golf ball. Separate these into two distinct piles--you might do light and dark, bright and dull, warm and cool, striping and solid, sparkly and fuzzy, whatever you've got in your stash. Work the center of each square using one ball from each pile.
