A fun fingerless mitten, and super-easy to make: knit two flat strips, and sew them together in a spiral.
The instructions (7 pages) are both written and charted, and include a detailed description for assembling the mittens. There is an easy k/p stitch pattern to add texture, and edge stitches will need to be slipped kwise/pwise. For the beginning and end of the strips you will also need to know how to do k1fb, k2tog, and psso. A very easy trim gives the mittens the finishing touches.
Lots of thanks to all my wonderful test knitters.
