Looking for a cool pattern for mittens, fingerless or not, to make as a xmas gift. I'm not liking much of what I am finding so far on the net.

Suggestions?

Oh... men's size med.

Hope you all are well!

I'm making two pairs of

I'm making two pairs of fingerless gloves right now. The absolute best resource I've found for them is a book called The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns by Ann Budd. They're simple, plain, easy to follow and each pattern has a grid for different sizes and guages. It's an awesome book.

Hey you, the current Interweave Holiday Knits issue has a few fingerless glove patterns that might work. It's a fun issue anyway. Good luck in your search.

You didn't say whether you prefer straight needles and sew up the edge or DPs and pick up the thumb after.

Using that Vittadini yarn?

I did a pair of gauntlet cuff mittens that would fit a man quite nicely. I'm sorry I can't be of much help providing the pattern right now as I am at work, but when I get home tonight I will find it and scan it for you.
