You need to define the gutter variable outside of the h1 block so that your .col rule can use it:

$color-brand: #6a5acd;
$gutter: 20px;

h1 {
  color: $color-brand;
}

.col {
  margin-left: $gutter;
}

.col { margin-left: $gutter; } still not working pliz help.

$color-brand: #6a5acd;

h1 { color: $color-brand; } $gutter: 20px; .col { margin-left: $gutter }
