Helleborus - Free web archived crochet fingerless mitts pattern (to download) by Shelby Allaho / Tangled Online Magazine. Also as a Ravelry download here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/helleborus-2
You will find these mittens quick to knit up and wonderfully warm for little hands. They have been “kid-tested” by my seven children, and they love them! They have an extra long cuff to keep out the snow and cold and are easily adjusted for the perfect fit. These mittens come in four sizes, plus a bonus Thumbless Mitten pattern for your littlest ones.
These mittens have some features that I think of as associated with a gansey—split hems, patterned gussets, and areas with different patterns set off by horizontal welts. They have generously long cuffs to keep the rain out of your sleeves.
