Well that's a bit of a puzzle...

I am knitting squares for an afghan, I first mentioned it here.  This is the square I am working on at the moment, it's called Sand Ripples.  I am really enjoying knitting these squares.
 I am using the exact same yarn and the exact same size of needles, but so far they are all different sizes???
I am no expert when it comes to knitting, but even I can see something isn't right?  I know I have to "block" the squares, but even so there seems to be quite the difference?  Should I be concerned?

It could be the type of stitch you are using - some draw the pattern in more than others. Try to block them to the same size.

The one in the middle will block out bigger. If necessary, you might have to use some fabric softener to relax those ribs.

Non-knitter here, so I don't have a clue, sorry!

Not being a knitter, I would have no idea.

Each pattern has a different gauge. Blocking will improve each square.

God bless.

It’s the variety of stitches, some knit up tighter than others.

It's definitely the range of different stitches used. Also as you put the blocks together they will probably even out.

Blocking will also help but unless you are using wool you'll need to be careful not to overstretch it.

It looks lovely so far.
