Not sure if I described the problem right.
I have mentioned here before that I am making squares for a sampler blanket. Being a new knitter, I thought it was a good way to learn and experiment.
However, I have knitted two squares that "pull in". One is a cabled square, and I knew it would pull in, and I still didn't allow quite enough stitches across and it's a little small. Now I am doing one called "slip stitch honeycomb" and it's pulling in, too. Here's the link to the pattern: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/stitches/honeycomb.htm
I should have cast on five or six more stitches. It's mostly wool so I hope blocking will help with the shortfall.
Is there any way to judge if a stitch pattern will do this, or does this just come with experience?
