YAY!! So happy for you!! This whole project is a lesson in patience for me as I've never had to knit so many squares to be a certain size! It can be so frustrating; yet rewarding when we finally get a problem worked out.

I am thinking of just knitting up coordinating squares. this is where they mystery part is frustrating because I do not have enough knowledge to make a design change. Until this square I was knitting along merrily!

Row 2 is (knit 1, purl 1) repeated across, you will end with a knit stitch. The knit stitch is a regular knit stitch, not a knit-one-below! The result is a nice variation on the seed stitch, in my opinion! This stitch variation used less yarn (achieved the size with 51 stitches instead of 55) but keeps the fabric close to the same thickness as the garter stitch squares. I didn't reverse the pattern for the decrease rows, kept the same stitch pattern going. The decrease rows are Row 1, the usual knit decrease row. Row 2 is (knit 1, purl 1) repeated across.
That darn knit-one-below in garter stitch drove me crazy, and no matter how many do-overs and how many videos I watched, it always turned out as one sloppy mess! Knit-one-below in stockinette causes me no grief, though! The only thing I can think of is I carry my yarn in my left hand, and it has something to do with how I wrap the yarn around the needle that is causing the problem.
