i have been searching everywhere, but i can't seem to find a good pattern for a pair of nordic mittens(the ones w/out the fingers).
So if anyone has a good pattern that they wouldn't mind posting, that would be amazing

Mittens have fingers (all together not individually but still kind of for fingers) ... do you mean the fingers can be temporarily popped off at the top to leave fingers free, or do you mean mitts/fingerless gloves?

Check out Eunny's Endpaper Mitts maybe (and her Anemoi Mittens while you're there just because they are stunning)?

And Knitty has some stranded colourwork mittens you might like to make up to the knuckles? What exactly are you after?

i was going to suggest the sea mineral mitts too, have seen them on various sites with changes to the patterns, & they always look lovely

i plan on making a skull & crossbones pair in the christmas hols

In that case definitely check out Eunny - good points are the corrugated ribbing that's actually stretchy/elastic, and the thumb (as she points out). Or these cute Sea Mineral ones are gorgeous: best, though, you can interchange colours and stitch patterns: even motifs of different stitch numbers (big differences in numbers, though, will usually require a slight change in gauge/tension).

If you like a different motif, just put it into a blank-square chart (rather than whatever motif the pattern specifies). If you keep the same stitch count, the chart will be the same: if you have a different stitch count, make a new chart with more or fewer columns. Just remember that you want to minimise long floats (one inch MAX IMO)
