A fun fingerless mitten, and super-easy to make: knit two flat strips, and sew them together in a spiral.
The instructions (7 pages) are both written and charted, and include a detailed description for assembling the mittens.

For the beginning and end of the strips you will also need to know how to do k1fb, k2tog, and psso. A very easy trim gives the mittens the finishing touches.
In stocking stitch: 21sts per 10cm (4")
In pattern: 1 pattern repeat to measure 2.7cm x 1.7 cm (1" x 11/2")

My knitting patterns provide very detailed instructions.

All the thinking has been done for you!
