Facial Wash Mitten

We are well in to December with 2 weeks to Christmas so if you need a quick present how about a Facial Wash Mitten.
I done 2 out of one ball of cotton I cast on 64st  over 4 Dps needles size 4.5mm needles then changed to 3.5mm needles & did 10 rounds of 1x1 rib then changed to 4.5mm needles again & on needles 2 & 3 I knitted those & on needles 1 & 4 I did a moss stitch but any stitch pattern to give a bit of a raised patterns will do & I knitted until the length of hand then knitted needle 1 but putting it on with stitches on needle 4 then did same with 2 & 3 so you have stitches from needles 1 & 4 on one needles & stitches from 2 &3 on another needle & then did a 3 needle cast off.
I managed to get 2 from 1 ball I am showing both sides of the mitten in the photo as I don't have loads of solid colours I tried it out in the variegated yarn but think it would look better in solid colours

Great idea! I like the mitts better than just a wash cloth.
