There must be a difference between the two colors. I originally thought maybe the first one was so big because I knitted it on straights, but using my circulars gave me the same results.
The Square Motif
Dimensions: Target: 12 x 12 inches
The first one I made was with a size 8 needle and it ended up measuring 13.5 x 12.5 inches. This time I used a US 7, but after about 12 rows I could tell it was too wide. Size US 6 was working out well until I took it off the needles. During photography I received a measurement of 12 x 13 inches. Aiyaa!
This is a knit afghan square that I created for the a Vineyard Christian Fellowship Coffee Connection afghan, as gratitude for our gathering/meeting space. I believe the afghan shall be raffled off to patrons.
I had previously created the chocolate square – plain stockinette with seed stitch border, same yarn brand – based on the gauge printed on the yarn label and had no problems. When I created this Toast square the first time, it measured 12.5 x 13.5.
