Pockets on gloves?

Knitquiring minds want to know…what are the pockets on gloves for?!?

Example: http://www.berroco.com/galleries/gallery_238/index_238.html

And the buttons… what are those for?

are ya kiddin? those are the coolest invention EVER…and one of the reasons i started knitting. it turns fingerless gloves into mittens! you unbutton that little pocket lookin’ thing and it goes up over the fingers. i LOVED mine and have been sad since i lost them…i need to learn how to do that stuff so i can make me a new pair!!! (or 10 :rofling: ) :happydance:

I have had [THESE FLIP TOP MITTENS size=2[/size]](http://fruitychick.com/blog/patterns/plaidftmittens.pdf)on my to do list almost since the day I started knitting!

I adore my flip-top mittens! I can’t tell you how many pairs of mittens I lost when I left them on top of the car because I was trying to get one of the girls stuffed into their carseat on a frigid winter day. With the flippy things, I don’t have to take them off when I clip dd in.

THANKS KK, I need a pattern for flip top mittens :smiley:

Anybody wanna take a stab at combining these with these?

I also have a pair of the glove-mittens; although, I didn’t make mine. :wink:

Couldn’t you just knit first pattern, but BO where you want the fingerless part to be?

Nope, I wasn’t kidding. :blush: I feel rather silly now. I must have these gloves…smokers unite, smoking is a PITA with gloves on…

Exactly. :wink:

ya know there is another solution for that toooooo :shifty: :angelgrin:

I love the mittens with the flappies over the fingies… makes it nice when we up here are trying to press the itty bitty buttons on our Auto Start in the cold winter so the car can be toasty before you get in… :happydance:

:stuck_out_tongue: Brenda!

Yeah, however, smoking without gloves on is a PITA as well. :lol:

It’s hard to choose between dying of frostbite or a nicotine fit…

I think those fingerless gloves with the flaps are called glittens. There must be a free pattern on the internet.

Yeah, I’ve seen a few around, but didn’t know what the heck they were for. It’s the little things in life you miss…LOL!

But, some have half-fingers and some have no fingers. I think the latter are called “convertible mittens”

I think I’ll make some with just the finger parts…no hands parts.

You mean like finger puppets? :roflhard:
