$color: 1px solid;

@mixin square ($size, $color){

}

Hey Ronald!

I think you're close, but the border styles are a little confusing. Your $color variable should be a color, like, blue, red, or #ffc1cc. Then in your square mixin, your border style should be border: 1px solid $color. The code should look like this:

@mixin square($size, $color) {
  height: $size;
  width: $size;
  border: 1px solid $color;
}
