Bean wears these all the time, and I remember making them whilst I was at school, called "miser mittens" back then. She came back form college in the first week with a request for three pairs for some of her fellow students. I've got them done now, ready to go in with her tomorrow. They're a good, quick, easy project, and you can put various odds and ends to good use.
Double knitting wool (worsted weight in USA), on 4mm needles/size 8 UK/size 6 US. Cast on 42 stitches and work required length in K2 P2 ribbing - about 7"/17cm. Easy to make longer if required, just keep working rib until length required is reached. Cast off in rib. Fold in half and sew up seam, leaving enough room for the thumb to go through. Weave in ends. Look cool (so I'm told......... ;0)
Might have to do myself a pair now.......
