Someone couldn't find mittens where the finger tips can be uncovered or recovered. On patternfish.com I put 12 patterns on a page and on page 8 and page10 there were 4 patterns for pop top mittens. Also, on patterncentral.com knitting czar has a free pattern for disappearing finger mittens.18 oct. 2008. Hope this helps and the person looking for them reads this.
Wasn't me, but I love this kind of mitten so will add to my site list. Thanks
those are very nice.. I kinda thought that those and fingerless gloves were fairly new but I was looking through the antique knitting books site, http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/
and they had some in some of those books too.. I just guess it goes to show whats old is new again eventually...LOL
