The Lion Brand weekly e-mail has been including a washcloth pattern each week for the summer, since they're small, portable, and a good way to practice new stitches. The top set (South Beach Washcloths) I made for my younger sister, but the bottom two I kept for myself. You can't really tell from the picture, but the South Beach ones have a kind of slanted ribbing effect going on that's achieved by alternating half-double crochet stitches and slip stitches.
