Need help knitting custom gloves and mittens for kids with missing fingers and/or hands

Gentlemen --

I am part of a group offering support to people with Amniotic Banding Syndrome (which I also have). It means that we have either missing or little fingers or no hand at all.

Folks in that group are looking for people to make custom mittens and gloves for hands with different number and sizes of fingers.

Open "weave" sweater

I am looking for a knit stitch for a sweater that would be open, i.e. not tightly knit using a thicker yarn.
Maybe something like a rose stitch? Would large needles and garter stitch work? Granted that would be bit boring as stitches go! :-)

Knitted tights?

Has anyone seen a pattern for knitted tights?
I'd like something a lot warmer and smaller gauge than these.

What's The Knitting Equivalent To Crochet's Granny Square?

I do not crochet. Heard that the granny square is one of the very easy and fast way to produce items when crocheting. Can you think of anything like that when knitting?

Thanks in advance.
