Some of the squares might have some size issues, since the purl stitch is included.
Some knitters make their purl stitches bigger than their knit stitches, and this causes a change in the gauge.
Half of this square has purl stitches, and the other half has none. That could explain the difference for some of you.

from what I read from the pattern it seems like it will be the same on both sides

May be I'll have to change the sewing clue ....I'm sure you understand : this blanket is for my eldest son, 28, fan of racing cars, F1 and specially of Ferrari !!!

You may call me "Captain Overkill:" I borrowed my mom's foam squares for blocking, put tape around the outside so I knew where the limits were, measured 9.5" on each side, marked them, put tape down the middle, marked that at 9.5" both ways in the middle, and put tape intersecting going the other way. Then I hand-washed the squares, squeezed the water out with a towel, and pinned each square to its area.
You can see the top two are pinned and the bottom two aren't. I took the needle from the top left and instead used it on one of the shaker rib squares since its sides were pretty wobbly. I don't own an iron, so I'm hoping this does the trick!
