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.
Oh... men's size med.
Hope you all are well!
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.

That's the yarn I was thinking of using! Thanks again for sending it to me it will make a great pair.
Smooches again, Chris
You are very welcome. I'm glad you like it. It felts nicely too.
Aha. Now if we are talking felted mittens, this is a plain pattern designed to be fitted while felting:
