Using the wrong size needles
If you use bigger needles, do you use up more wool, or less, to get the same size knitted square?

I would think less.

Make two squares, measure the yarn you used and let us know.

Less. Each stitch will use more yarn with the larger needle but you need a lot less stitches and rows to make the same size.
