These are sort of fingertip wash mitts. Compared to the big, luxury mitts they dry more quickly and don’t drip as much while washing at the sink–you know that drip down to the elbows? The textured stitch makes for good scrubbiness. They measure about 4 inches tall and 3 1/2 inches wide at the top, flaring out to 4 inches at the ruffled bottom edge.
A very quick knit.

Fold over and knit together the edges of the mitt using your preferred method. One way would be simply to sew the top and side edges. Another way is to use the three-needle bind off for the top edge and sew together the side with a tapestry needle.
Choosing your color combinations is the fun part.
