Intro: I bought an a**-load of sugar and cream to make Xmas hand towels and dishcloths. That day, I see the fun bias-knit squares goin on over at masondixonknitting.com. An idea is born.
The problem: When I try to make squares, they are not square. My decreases don't match my increases.
The Question: Which increases go with which decreases? I've tried M1L with SSK and ended up with two sides that were too long. Pulling it into shape off the needles helped, but not enough to make it look decent.
Do you say other than washcloths because you've already made one? Because I looove making hand towels, washcloths, etc. I use ombre Sugar N Cream or Peaches N Creme and just knit that s*** up in garter stitch. Perfect for the train, and the pretty colors keep it from being too boring. At the end I make a little braided strap so they can hang from a hook. And with a baby on the way, I can imagine that you'd use a lot of them!
