This pattern is part of the 2013 Independent Designer Gift-a-Long! See here for more details!
Warning: it is impossible to wear these gloves or mitts without feeling the need to wildly wiggle your fingers!
The background and palm-side consist of an easy to memorize four row repeat while the back shows off the kraken whose tentacles are your fingers! The fingerless version works best when the kraken color is close to your skin color, allowing the two to blend together. For this reason, I highly suggest Jamieson Shetland Spindrift or Knit Picks Palette, both of which come in an array of neutral tones.
The pattern includes four charts. There are separate left and right charts for two versions, one for light colored kraken and one for dark. There are also instructions for working a full glove or the fingerless version. Two different sizes use the same charts, the sizing determined by the needles and gauge. Lots of room for customization here!
