I originally made these for my dad and brother, respectively, but after they were felted, it turns out that I really made them for my moms.

In Montana, they're colloquially referred to as "shooter gloves", for the way they come in handy while hunting.  Here in the civilized world, we're just going to say that they're "really damned useful mittens".
They have a little tab of velcro inside to keep the mitten tops down when you need them down, and on the back to keep the flaps from annoying you when they're off your fingers.
Pattern here: a href="http://www.crochetandknitting.com/mittglov.htm.  I used worsted-weight Lion Woolyarn and a J hook.

I have some of these!
But my best friend calls them "glittens". It sounds better than "mloves". . .

They're so darn cute!  Not sure about the hunting thing, but you're right, they seem very useful.  Great job on both pairs.

i made a pair for myself using the second pattern on that same site.

i call them mitt-gloves or fingerless gloves.

i also made a pair for my cousin (she adores them) and was just commissioned to make a pair for a girl in my belly dance class!

i make mine out of patons classic marino b/c it has 225 yards and i can get a full pair from slipknot to tie off out of one skein.
