10 sc = 4 inches (10 cm); each square measures 8 inches x 8 inches. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

This is my first time using Homespun. And oh goodness, it is so difficult. Took me forever just to sc in the starting chain. The wavy style of it just doesn't work for me. But I do like how nice and soft it is. And very pretty colors.
