Fingerless gloves turned to full mittens

What are you most proud of? The mittens fit well and the lengthening worked out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used the magic loop method and it's very easy and much nicer than using double pointed needles. I watched a video on YouTube. This is my first magic loop effort.

Q&A with FibreAddict

bethbonjo1565719 asked:
Is there a pattern to turn the fingerless gloves into the mittens as shown.
FibreAddict answered:
Well, I extended the pattern as I lengthened the hand. I did most of my decreases along the side, at first. I've made plenty if mittens in the past. I kept trying it on to see how it fit. Sorry I don't have a particular pattern or recipe for how to do it. But, you could check out how other mittens are decreased at the top and incorporate that into making these.
