The Twist-Ago Washcloth is quick and easy to make using basic crochet stitches, a small amount of cotton yarn, and a H/8 (5.0 mm) hook. My good friend and fellow blogger Tamera at Moogly Blog put a new stitch out called Twisted Single Crochet, it looks like the Reverse Single Crochet (aka the Crab Stitch) but is worked going the standard direction.
