My mum knitted me a blanket a few years back. My girlfriend loves it so for Christmas I thought I would knit her one. However things seem to have gone a bit wrong…
The blanket is made up of several squares crocheted together. The pattern for each square is 32 knit, 32 purl with two balls of superchunky wool and 10mm needles. I used the same brand wool as my mum but my first square is decidedly rectangular!
Is it just different tension that has caused this? I am confused because it is somehow longer… I would have thought tighter tension would shrink the square in all directions.
