Shaker Style Rug update

I've still been knitting squares for my rug. Its slow but steady progress. The above three squares are my latest patterns. My favourite of these is the cream square. None of these patterns were at all hard. I have noticed that some of my casting off is too tight, the squares are a bit misshapen. I'm thinking of unpicking the worst of these and casting off a bit looser.

Happy knitting,
Lynda
