Two-Finger Mittens

I don't know about you, but my fingers get cold with they're in regular gloves, and stay warm in mittens.  But it's harder for me to grab stuff with mittens because my fingers are constricted.

My solution?  I made custom mittens that were two fingers, instead of one big pocket for my fingers.

Here's how you do it:

1) Take a mitten, fingerless glove, or glove pattern you already have, and after you knit or crochet the palm (so it's a fingerless glove) then mark the two stitches in the center, between your middle and ring fingers.

2) Then just finish the fingers as you would any mitten, only making two fingers instead of one big one. That part you marked is where the two fingers separate.

I love the ones I made.  I use them all the time :).
