As a test of my knitting ability, I made washcloths.  I even tried to do patterns.
Sugar N Cream yarn in "Strawberry"

Ribbed:


Squares:



Yeah, still definitely beginner status...

They look great. And washcloths are an excellent way to practice new stitch patterns. I still do it. I get something not too important to practice on, and yet still have a useful item when I am done. I like the colorway of the yarn too. I'm on a pink kick lately.

Looks great.  Even tension, very neat.  But........  not a problem with washclothes and such, and it may just be the picture.... but the first photo labled as ribbed?  Looks like a twisted rib stitch.  If that is what you intended then, nevermind ;~)  But may pose a problem when following a pattern if that is not the stitch you are aiming for.

I could be just seeing it wrong........

nice! And after 20 years knitting and also enrolling in TKGA Master's program..I still make dishclothes and washclothes. Think of them as a basic like milk and bread..as opposed to just being of beginner status.

It is ribbed.  Or so I thought...
What's a twisted rib stitch?
