Two years ago I had made a pair of fingerless gloves for myself. I wore them so much they have bit the dust, they are so worn out I had to make me a new pair. So I searched Ravelry high and low until I found the pattern that I fell in love with. I also didn't want to buy a pattern, I just love those freebies, and I didn't want to buy any yarn since I had so much yarn in my stash.
What is really nice about these is that you can fold the top cuff down and they turn into a pair of mittens, well, almost a pair of mittens.
The link to this pattern is HERE. The only change I did to the pattern is that I shortened the length.
