Is there such a thing as....
Is there such a thing as knitting mittens from the wrist up to the fingers and starting off with NOT using dp needles? I learned how to knit socks from the TOE UP and didn't start right off with all dp needles. It was so much easier to master the dp needles after working on some of the socks. So when the time came to changing to dp I had NO problem.

I would love to learn how to knit mittens the same way..sort of work my way up to using the dp needles.

Is there such a thing? Thank you for any help.

I don't know about specific patterns, but you could knit the wrist band back and forth and then join for circs for the hand. You'd have to put a seam in the wrist, but that's not the end of the world.
