What I have always done is pick a mitten pattern that I liked and knit 4 -6 rows after finger opening and then cast off. Then pick up stitches for thumb and knit 2 rows then cast off. as long as the gauge match the yarn you are using.
On LionBrand pattern website there is a Lion Brand庐 Wool-Ease庐 Thick & Quick庐
Learn to Knit Cuff that I just did for my daughter. It is very easy and quick.
You realize that unless your grand-daugher is adult size most patterns will need to be modified.
I looked for the one I made up for my 7 year old granddaughter but have not found it yet. Below is how I did hers.

But I simply measured the wrist and the palm. Rib stitch (k2,p2) at wrist for 2 inches and added enough stitch after the wrist to be wide enough for the palm. I knitted the distance for the wrist bone to the knuckles and changing to rib for 1/2 inch near knuckles. Now this is a square piece, so fold over and sew seam leaving a hole for the thumb.


Example: Cast on 20 stitches, work K2, P2 rib for 8 rows. Change to stocking stitch increasing 4 st evenly along 1st row, then work 16 rows. Then work another 4 rows in rib. Cast off. Make two the same, then sew up the side, leaving a space unsewn for your thumb. This could work for size 7 or 8 needle yarn. You will need to measure the child and check as you knit. After you do this first one, you can repeat what worked.

Have you looked on ravelry? They have many free patterns and some that you could buy. I use that source for fingerless gloves or mitts.
Thanks, I been on that site. Didn't see anything, but will check again. My granddaughter is 16, but has small hands. Have had to cut pattern down for her hands.
Thanks again. It is cold here in Michigan.

For my grandchildren who are ten and eleven, I just adjust by subtracting at least 6 stitches. Another thought is to go down a couple needle sizes if you like a pattern and don't want to try to omit a number of stitches.
Thanks, I have been doing that. Alot of the patterns I have found for making the fingerless gloves are for using dbpointed needles. Which I don't know how to use, guess I need to learn.
Just not alot of patterns out there for making or knitting fingerless gloves.
Oh, I never thought about that. I have used double points for a long time. I have seen some that were knit flat and seamed.
