Glovemitts (or Glittens)

Whatever they're called. I think there should be a proper name for fingerless gloves with mitten covers. "I made you fingerless-gloves-with-mitten-covers." is quite a mouthful.

These "glittens" were made with grey alpaca, using 4mm DPNs.

Both Hands:
Using 5mm needle, cast on 38 stitches using long tail twisted cast on. Divide evenly over 4 - 4mm needles and join.
Knit 15 rows.

Right Hand:
Row 16: Knit to 2 stitches before 2nd needle. PM, k4, M1R, PM.
Row 17: Knit across.
M1R at every second row until you have a total of 12 stitches in the thumb gussett.
Knit across other rows (31 rows)
Transfer gussett stitches to waste yarn.
CO 4 stitches using backwards loop.
Knit to 44 rows (~1 1/2 inches)
Pinkie: PU 4 front, CO 2, PU 4 back. Knit 10 rows. Bind off.
CO 2 stitches next to pinkie and knit 2 rows palm stitches.
Ring: PU 5 front, CO 2, PU 5 back. Knit 10 rows and bind off.
Middle: PU 5 front, CO 2, PU 5 back, CO 2. Knit 10 rows and bind off.
Index: PU 6 front, 6 back, CO 2. Knit 10 rows and bind off.
Thumb: Divide over 2 needles (6/6). PU 5 along the top of thumb hole. Knit to middle of thumb nail (14 rows?). K2tog until 4 stitches. Thread yarn through remaining stitches and close.

Left Hand:
Knit to 2 stitches from the end of the second needle. PM, M1L, K4, PM.
Same as the right hand...M1L for every second row, knit the other row to 12 stitches in the gussett.
Knit fingers same as the right hand.
