Help for beginner please
Hello all

Need some help please. I am knitting blanket squares and following a pattern
I have done a tension square as recommended and mine is coming out larger assume I am a loose knitter, the pattern says I need to Knit on smaller needles but not sure how low to go. The pattern says to use 4mm needles so should I go to 3mm or is this just trial and error to see what ones I need?

Secondly the pattern says to knit stripes using 3 colours of two rows each. Is the best way to do this, to break the yarn each time and join a new one (seems a lot of sewing in of ends) or carry the wool up, like a fair isle pattern

Sorry if these questions are basic, but want to get it right

Appreciate any help you can give

Thank you
