If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

I may also try this but what does Seed Stitch (multiple of 2 + 1) mean. I know what seed stitch is but how is multiple of 2 +1 translated to be?

Instead of knitting each of the panels I cast on all of the stitches with markers to remind me when to change patterns and knit the whole thing in one piece. I hate to sew the pieces together!!! YOu end up with a seamless afghan.

Seed stitch multiple of 2+1 means that you have to cast on a multiple of 2 stitches on your needle that is an even number of stitches and then add one last st. (+1)
many stitch patterns say this sort of thing the first number is the pattern and the extra stitches are for placing the pattern in the row.
