How many rows and stitches make a square?
Keep on going, knitting every row until you have a square – this will be about 120-130 rows. It should be approximately 12 inches by 12 inches but don’t worry if it’s a bit bigger or smaller – we will still be able to use it. Once you have finished knitting all your rows, cast off all the stitches.
