From the pattern description: Take your knitting in a new direction! Cast on at the outer edge of the hand and worked sideways in one piece to the tip of the thumb, Skeuomorph will challenge the way you think about mitten construction and the directionality of knitting. Despite the name, every part of these mittens is fully functional—even the buttons, which hold the cuffs closed without any need for seaming.

Finished length (from narrowest point of wrist to tip of
middle finger): 6.25 (6.75, 7.25, 7.75) (8.25, 8.75, 9.25)

Sizing note: Sizing is based on the height of the mitten, not the width, which is adjustable. Select a size that will fit over your hand with a small amount of ease; the sample mittens are a size M on hands that measure 7.5 inches.

Pattern is a three page PDF, all written instructions.
