This was a satisfying project — quick little fingerless gloves with a cabled owl pattern. Auggie has never been too crazy about having his hands in mittens, but he is fine with these since his fingers are free. (Top image is from my friend Lori Kiessling). My pattern notes and source below.
The pattern is from craftsy, and it's a good, clear pattern with lots of options and sizes. I used the smallest size and switched down 1 needle size and used a dk weight yarn to achieve a toddler size (not included in the pattern). These are in louet gems yarn, a machine washable merino yarn. The wight is sport.
