Button Flap Fingerless Mitts

These fingerless gloves have a classic, yet modern design that is super easy and quick. The button flap gives it a finished look and the “No Thumb” thumb opening makes it a breeze to knit. No button holes needed! Great for gift giving - your friends never need know how easy these really are!
These gloves are worked from the cuff up. They begin knit in the round, knit back and forth at the thumb opening, then back to knitting in the round for the top of the glove. The button flap is knit as a separate piece, then sewn on with the buttons.
Originally knit in Lion Brand Wool-Ease for its cost effective nature and ease of washing, but any worsted yarn will work great. I was able to get 2 pairs of gloves out of one skein.
Use any buttons that look great - no specific size needed, and since they are sewn on directly, there are no pesky button holes to match up to your cool buttons.
