I made a My So-called Scarf, then used the pattern to knit mitten cuffs--basically a short thin scarf that wrapped around the wrist. I sewed the wrist band together at the wrist, then picked up stitches along the top edge for the start of the hand.

I did the same thing for a hat--different yarn, though. Here are some pics so you can see what I'm talking about.

You can do this with any pattern, really.

If you're not familiar with it, check out www.knittingpatterncentral.com . Lots and lots of freebies, maybe even a pattern for a set!
