Fingerless Mitt for Fall

First photo of fall fingerless mitten.

I started with bulky yarn on size 10 needles. It's puffy & loose enough to go over a shirt sleeve. At the wrist I added a second strand of the same yarn and then decreased a little to give it a snug-in-place feeling. Since I couldn't decide whether to knit a thumb or leave an opening, I compromised and did neither/both. Increases made the opening feel intentional, but short enough not to impede movement. The extra stitches were decreased on the first row of seed stitch at the knuckle.

Great job! That knit up really fast and I like the cuff a lot!
