So lessee... your squares are approximately 56 sts across, so about 12x12" depending on your gauge. That would put your finished size at about 24 inches square. A little bit smaller than the original, but you could cast on more stitches. To know how many, figure your gauge sts/inch and multiply times 18 or 19 (half the size it would be). Then double however many stitches and add one. That's your CO number.

Ya know, if this is supposed to be knit double stranded on size 8s with worsted weight yarn, that's a really dense fabric. I wouldn't think it would be soft and cuddly at all. I'd certainly make it with one strand and on size 10 or 10.5 needles. But that's me - I like looser stitches rather than tighter ones.

Thanks Sue!

I think I will just wing it I guess

I really like the 'pattern' is why I kept it. And I have wanted to try mitered squares. I just didn't think it would confuse me this much

I think I will try it with just one strand. I suppose I can do one square, if it doesn't turn out very well I can always turn that square into a pillow or something :P

Well there ya go!

I'm always tweaking patterns because I want to combine elements from two different ones, or want to use larger needles than recommended. And for those who only use 8s to knit worsted weight with it may seem like heresy, but yes, I use 10.5s or larger and the knitting isn't too loose.
