A fingerless mitten pattern with super-flexible sizing, funky colours, and a great opportunity to show off your favourite buttons. The mittens are knitted flat, and then wrapped around the arm. The location of the buttons determine the size. For the thumb, instructions are given for either knitting flat, or in the round.

The pattern provides detailed instructions (9 pages) with illustrations.

My knitting patterns provide very detailed instructions. Apart from the very few designs in which the two gloves/mittens are knitted exactly identical, my patterns always include instructions for both the right and the left hand glove/mitten - no struggle over creating a mirror image of the first glove! All the thinking has been done for you!
