I just finished knitting these mittens/gloves.  I knitted a black pair last year but this year I wanted something more exciting. I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but the tops fold back so you can use your fingers better.  I, personally, like mittens because they are warm but it's hard to get the kids off to school on a cold morning when your fingers are stuck in mittens so these are the perfect solution.

Those mittens are so darn cute!

I'm gonna have to learn to knit, aren't I.  doh!  Just what I need ... another hobby ...  Tongue

Think you'd want to describe how you made them for those here who do know all that knittin' lingo?

I got this pattern from www.Knitty.com.  The link to the actual page is http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTbroadstreet.html.
This pattern would be a little complex for a beginner but knitting is very easy and I love that it's so portable. You can take your pojects anywhere.

oooh, those are so awesome!! i used to have some convertibles like those, but apparently the only ones you can buy are size gi-normous! i'm teaching myself to knit, so i'm going to give those a try when i'm feeling ambitious!! i'm so inspired, thanks!!

Sorry but I have to bump this up!

Does anyone know of a crochet pattern for this.  I started crocheting a few months ago and would love to make these for Christmas gifts and for myself, Of course!  Smiley

I've seen some awesome ideas on this site.  Very creative people here!  Keep up the great crafting!

Glittens! (at least, that's what we call 'em)

I really am going to have to break down and learn to knit. I've tried teaching myself before, but to no avail. I taught myself to crochet with no trouble, but knitting seemed impossible. Two needles? Yikes.
