Hi all,
I've just designed a new pair of crochet fingerless gloves that I want to publish in a few weeks. The photo shows the first prototype that will be slightly adapted but not changed as to its looks.
However, I cannot think of a catchy name for the pattern. So I thought I'd ask here if somebody has better ideas than I have.
Thanks in advance.

"High five falutin'" Or the Fandango. Something to do with the fan or funnel shape of the lines.

They look really great and even warm as well, very important I feel!!

I did find this online:-

Best Answer: Technically, in 'British English', a "mitten" has two divisions - one for the thumb and one for the other four fingers. And the second division covers them, not leaving them exposed.

But it does have a 'diminutive' meaning which is "mitt".

A "mitt" is, "a woman's glove covering part of the arm, the hand, and sometimes part of the fingers".

(A further definition is marked as 'US' - "Baseball - a padded glove worn for protection." As I recall, a 'catcher's mitt' has spaces for all five fingers, even if they are all covered.)

So, in the "Queen's English", it should be called a "mitt", not a "mitten".

If you were being technical, I suppose that's the word;- "Mitt" for one, "mitts" for a pair.

But, here in New Zealand (still mainly using "British English"), we market them as "fingerless gloves".

(But I did see them on sale once as "fingerless mittens", just to confuse the issue!)


So they are technically "Mitts" for more than one. Or "Mitt" for just one! So maybe this may help with naming them?

How about "Knit-Mitts", "Color-Mitts", "Warm-Mitts", "High-Five-Mitts", "Glove-Mitts", "Finger-Mitts".

Sadly, naming things and colours are not my strong point, as my wife already knows..... :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
