HELP! Mitred square too long

I'm attempting the 9 square dishcloth but for some reason my mitred square is waaaaay longer than the other squares on the cloth. What am I doing wrong? Should I switch to smaller needles? Am I knitting too loose (which is rarely a problem for me but who knows!)?? Does it just need to be blocked??

Comments:
That seems pretty odd, can you post a picture? I would try blocking first, if that doesn't work and you are sure you didn't pick up too many stitches, a photo might help someone here figure it out.
 
What are you decreasing in the middle? I forgot to decrease a couple of times on the first one I made - the first time I did miters - and had to frog back.
