Pattern Description:


I've been wanting a pair of fingerless/thumbless gloves for ages, but I wanted an optional mitten/finger flap for those moments were it is particularly cold. I was unable to find anything I liked, so I decided to write my own pattern. I made a pair for myself, and loved them. As I was writing the pattern many changes were made and now I love them even more! The option of having your fingers and thumb free allow for typing, texting and crocheting while wearing them - a must have for any yarnaholic! ;-)
