So I had this bright idea... (well, that's debatable)
Could you just knit a rectangle, fold it in half, and sew it up, leaving a gap for the thumb? Would that be completely ugly/wrong?
Or is there a really simple wrist warmers/ long fingerless gloves pattern out there? No fancy stitches, no knitting in the round... it's a bulky novelty yarn, so who knows what could happen.
