From the pattern:

9.5 sts + 13.5 rows = 4” [10 cm] in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS).

From Bernat Softee Chunky:

Tension
11 sts - 14 rows = 4" (10 cm)
Suggested Knitting Needle
8.00 mm, US 11

It looks to me as if all squares are stockinette and if you needed to you might be able to adjust the number of stitches if for the correct size of squares. If you're doing the letters though, that might be a problem. Hmmmm.

FWIW
I'm using a substitute yarn suggested by Lion Brand. My plan is (was?) to knit several for Christman presents, with the personalization, using duplicate stitch as in the pattern. I don't want to make them all the same; would like to make them really personal with colors in addition to personalization. I'm afraid of not ordering enough yarn to complete all the squares. I'll search for more super bulky yarn. I thank you for your reply.
