So I kinda made up a pattern for this as I went along, and I didn't bother to write anything down because I wasn't sure if it would turn out nice, so these gloves are ever-so-slightly different from each other! But I love them--they keep my hands and wrists warmer, but I can still do small things like dig for keys or push buttons on my mp3 player. I have no idea what yarn this is; I bought it at the bazaar for 50 cents with no label!

With my beloved scoodie, made with vegbee's tutorial (somewhere on Craftster!).

Close up.

So you can see the Frankensteinish seam!

What a great project for bargain yarn!  It looks nice and soft and warm! I think it's great fun to knit something up as an experiment.  I always learn something new and you even got something quite useable!  The knitting itself is beautiful and your seam does not detract from the work!  Nice job!

These are adorable! How were they constructed, if you don't mind my asking. =)

Thanks all. They were ridiculously easy and fast. After doing a test swatch and measuring around my wrist and wide part of my hand, I cast on enough stitches to stretch around my wrist. I worked a bit in ribbing and then in stockinette st until it looked long enough to keep my wrists warm. Then, still working in stockinette, I increased 2 sts every knit row and worked the purl rows even, until it was wide enough to go around my hand. I cast off enough sts to go around my thumb, and then worked a few more rows of stockinette and then ribbing until it was long enough. Then I just sewed up the seam from the bottom to the thumb, and then from the thumb to the top. Because I cannot make invisible increases, I incorporated it into the design, so the increase section looks like a V on the back of the hand. Easy-peasy!

I suppose it would be easy on dpns, since you wouldn't have a seam to sew up, but I live in a country which doesn't have dpns! At least, not that I've been able to find.
