Double up with a lining would be great...but I would use a wool or cotton blend as the polyester synthetic of most fleeces can cause perspiration that wont go anywhere and will end-up causing freezing of those wee hands, or older ones.

I love the longer sleeve. Nothing worse than seeing chapped wrists on little people who have spent an afternoon tobogganing.

These are both awesome and oh, so cute! I believe the grandkids will have last minute mittens in their stockings.

Come to think of it, Is a double layer possible as they would be warmer?

How did you know I was wondering how to make some fleece mittens. I have made a few scarves lately and thought some mittens would be nice as a matching accent. Thanks a bunch,

When my oldest son, who is now 20... was little, I paid $20 for mittens like this because of their length.  (They did have a Gortex shell though).
