Knitters ahoy!

So I'm attempting my first ever thing knitted from a real live pattern. And I figured it would be a good idea to actually knit a swatch first to check my tension. The pattern says:

TENSION: 21sts and 28 rows


Oh, I think I just solved my own problem. Was supposed to come out as 10cm on 5mm needles. And my piece is about 8.5cm x 13cm. But then I did 28 sts and 21 rows. Muppet.

I was wondering what one should do if ones tension is out completely in one direction and the opposite way in the other but I guess it's probably not too far wrong. Best knit another "square" just to be sure though
