Each crochet stitch has a bit of a lean to it. When you crochet a square in rounds always going in the same direction, the lean adds up and you get a skewed square. The solution is to turn the work occasionally and work in the opposite direction. This way you have a mix of wrong side and right side rounds, and you wont have them all leaning the same way and causing the blanket to be skewed.

 

From previous discussions, some people never get the skew even tho they do not turn, but some of us have to turn in order to have an unskewed square.

Mine doesn't skew tooo much, but if I want a closer to perfect square I have to turn now and again too

Mine always skews too, but I really don't mind it that much. If I'm being really particular then I change directions every once in a while.
