I have been making mittens for some girls that come through my crossing area ( I am a school Crossing guard) as a reward for positive behavior and the girls all wanted convertible mittens. So to make them I used the Magic loop method and on the palm side I knitted till it reached the bottom of my little finger and I then knitted across with waste yarn and purled back. Then resumed the original yarn and finished the top of the mitten. Then picked up the stitches on the waste yarn and knitted a few rows of ribbing. All I had to do to finish it was to sew the sides down. Then pick up the stitches for the thumb and finish it. It is easy to convert a mitten pattern to the convertible style by doing that.
