A border on the small ones in the same color won't detract from the border on the edge. However, try blocking them first. If they are close enough to the same size then you don't need to worry about it.

Squares...
Ok...here goes....two pics of the squares. I put one square on top of other in one pic so you could see the difference...if you can't see it in the one of them next to each other





What do you all think? i did wonder one thing - I've not seamed the ends...so i could try and unravel them all and start again..but that would be time consuming.....

I'd wash/block both squares first and try to squish (or pull) them into shape. After all, washing and blocking that small of an object won't take long and what do you have to lose? Then if that doesn't work, reknitting might be the way to go.

Be sure to let both squares dry completely, though, and see how well they keep their shape.

You know, it's always great to ask questions, but you can try some of this stuff out on your own, too. Different yarns behave differently and you won't know the end result (and whether you're happy with it) unless you try it. Go for it!

They may not be different enough to worry about. I think because knitting is stretchy it won't be noticeable once they are seamed. Blocking to test is a good idea though.

Odds are they'll be OK like that. Garter stitch is pretty forgiving. I don't think there's enough difference to be worth putting a row of single crochet around the small ones.
Try putting a couple together and see whether you mind the difference; if you do, you can always re-knit the small ones, and if you don't see enough difference to be a problem, you have part of the seaming done!
