Mitered Square and Hue Shift Afghan Purgatory
So, I'm "knitting" this amazing afghan , but I'm getting nowhere fast. The mitered square has gotten the best of me. I've knit and reknit the first square three times and each time it has ended up looking like a kite.

The directions for the first square say to CO 49 stitches and place a safety pin on the center stitch. The second row is knit. The third row is knit with a CDD in the middle. Rows 4, 5 and 6 are knit. The directions say to repeat rows 3-6 until 3 stitches remain and then continue on. I first need to master an actual square!

My gauge was off the first square, but now it is correct, so I'm at a loss. I looked at all the other beautiful square, squares on Ravelry and was mystified.

Please help!
