How to knit a square on the diagonal...
without it turning into a diamond.
I have tried making several different squares starting in a corner and increasing one stitch a row thereafter using different yarns and different needles yet only a few of them are coming out 'square' while the rest are a mild diamond. With some shaping and pulling I can get it to look more square.
What I am wondering is if this is normal when knitting squares?
If it is not normal can you guide me to how to fix it as I make it?
Do I need to only increase one every second row or increase two rows, do a third row no increase then repeat?
I am certain it is not my needle size.
or is it just a tension thing that will fix itself over time, as I practice more?
I have included a photo of my first 'diamond' square. Should be square.
