This is my new and easier version of the women's mittens/fingerless gloves pattern that I have here http://www.crochetandknitting.com/mitglov2.htm and the men's version here http://www.crochetandknitting.com/mittglov.htm

I didn't make a size for men but I would just use this pattern and a larger hook, either 6.00mm or 6.50mm.

My hands are small, a little more than 7 inches around the palm.

(Add more rnds if necessary for length to base of wearer's fingers)

(Helpful Hint: I have found it easier after attaching yarn for the palm and fingers to weave in the yarn ends as you go so you don't have to turn the mitten inside out and do it after it's finished.)

LITTLE FINGER

Continuing with yarn still attached after last Rnd, ch 1, 1 sc in same sc, 1 sc in next 3 sc, ch 2, find the last 3 sc of previous Rnd (see photo below of where I am beginning to work in those last 3 sc), work 1 sc in each of those 3 sc, ss to join. (9 sts)

LEFT MITTEN

Work exactly as for the Right Mitten up to the end of Rnd 14.

Hold the mitten/glove so the thumb is to the left, now turn the mitten/glove over to the back. You are working 12 scs along the back of the mitten though the back loops only. This leaves loops along the back for you to begin crocheting the mitten top at the end of the pattern.
