Square on square up date

I have started uploading a video on the Square on Square. I am using Bernat Baby yarn in light blue with keyplate 2. (I did not want a tight knit). I will take a close up so you can see what I am talking about.  This is not working out as I planned, I still like it but it is more rectangles than squares. If you want squares you would need twice as many rows as you have stitches. Also I think when I do this again, I will put the boarder on after then it will all be going in the same direction. I like the stitch I'm using. I will post a photo of it when I get closer to being done.

I have finished the square on square.

the boarder I used makes it a bit mis shaped.

adjustments I would make:
1. not do the boarder as I do the afghan, I would attach it after
2. use 90 stitches and knit 180 rows for each block.
3. then add the boarder, cast on 12 stitches, using seam as you go add the afghan.

4. I would either square off the corners or miter them.

I am adjusting the pattern to match my findings.

You can use what ever strip pattern you would like, what I used on the second square was:
At row 1 start with blue
starting with :
row 17 starts with pink
row 31 starts with blue
row 37 starts with pink
row 47 starts with blue
row 57 starts with pink
row 67 starts with blue
row 77 starts with pink
row 87 starts with blue
row 95 starts with pink
row 105 starts with blue
row 115 starts with pink
row 125 starts with blue
row 135 starts with pink

row 145 starts with blue
row 151 starts with pink
row 165 starts with blue, stop at row 180.
