But it ended up being almost an inch too big! (My knitting has never been too loose before. And, honestly, I still don't think it is.) So I thought, "Ok. I'll use a size 7 needle and knit another square." But guess what!? It's a half inch too big! I'm not sure what to do. If I go down to a size 6 needle, then I've wasted my time on 2 squares. I know I can rip them out and reuse the yarn. But... Is the square too big because it's garter stitch? Should I use the squares if they end up being 10"? I don't want to run out of yarn because I'm afraid it'd be too hard to find more yarn in the same dye lot. So would I be better off to go down to a size 6 needle to see what size I get? Has anyone else gotten 9.5" squares with a size 8 needle? Just curious.
