I'm in the process of designing an afghan that will consist of squares of 2 different colors sewn to each other checkerboard style. One color will be plain stockingette squares, while the other will be made up of all kinds of different patterns - cables, textured stitches, etc.

My concern here is - I know that different stitches will result in my getting a different width for each square if I keep the number of stitches the same over all of them. SO...to get the same width on each square, I'm going to have to work a different number of stitches for each square. THe problem is - HOW to plan for this? I want to make fairly large squares, approximately 14 inches across. The fear that I may end up knitting and RE-knitting squares over and over till they're the right size scares the crap out of me. 

Does anyone have any suggestions to make this process a little less painful? I absolutely MUST start on this this weekend - I have exactly a month to finish it in!  Shocked
