I know math isn't my forte, help me understand how these squares will be the same size.
There are two reasons - the first is that this stitch, shaker rib, lays very differently from the other one, garter stitch. The second is that (as it says in the pattern) you will need to stretch the fabric out a bit to measure, because it will stretch that much over time.
