Here is a version of these that I made using the Blue Sky Alpaca 100% Alpaca in purple (53).  One skein was more than enough for the pair - even going up on to the fingers as I did.  I used US 6's, but it still went fairly quickly.




P.S. This is my first craftster post.  I hope I haven't done anything wrong.

Wow. I've been making fingerless mittens using a buttonhole thumb, and I'm not very good at buttonholes.  I'd been wondering if sewing the side seam like you did would work...  And now I know it does.  Thanks!  Must go knit a pair right away.

Those are so great girlypirate!  I was about to start the ones from knitty, but I did not want to knit them in the round because I didn't have the right size dpns, and I also didn't really want to do a buttonhole.  So I'll just knit them with your method!  Thanks for posting!

I loved these so much I had to make some.  They were a good project for getting back into knitting after being away from it for a couple of years.  Thanks for the inspiration!

First of all, these are great.

Secondly, I saw someone wearing these the other day and they had a sort of cap at the end, that could be put on or kept off. I don't know if I explained it well enough but it would look like mittens when the cap was on and fingerless gloves when it was off.

The one I saw had the glove part one colour and the cap part another colour. They looked really neat and would not be very difficult to knit I assume.

I know what you are talking about, there is a pattern somewhere here on craftster for a crocheted version of those, if anyone is interested.
