Tension square issues - HELP!!
I am trying to get my tension square correct, but have come up against a problem that my knitting books don't mention.
My square SHOULD be 20 st x 28 Rows to 10 cm's on 4.5mm needles
I ACTUALLY knit 21.5 st's x 28 Rows to 10 cm's on 4.5mm needles
If I increase my needle size to make my stitch number correct, this will make my row incorrect, what should I do.
I have let my square settle before measuring, but always find my knitting it too 'long' and invariably need to miss rows out of patterns.
Am I doing something wrong that is simple to correct?
Thanks for looking
