Fingerless gloves/miser mittens as favoured by elderly rag and bone men during the 1960s. Very plain, minimal shaping, quick to knit because they are needed right now – who on earth designed a warm early spring jacket then gave it 3/4 length sleeves? There may be more decorative versions in the future, but these are 100% a solution to an immediate problem.
