I love the ridges that are formed with this stitch. I used 100% cotton so it will make a nice washcloth. I am going to save it for Operation Christmas Child. The most amazing part of this is I finished it in a day and a half. Considering it took me months to knit a washcloth, I think I am quicker at crochet. Besides, it gives me something to do when I take my kids fishing. That is, when I am not removing hooks from hair, trees, and the occasional fish.
