I have two patterns now and was testing both in parallel. The second one ended up finishing the testing process sooner because it is a lot easier, so I am proud to announce my first pattern, published on Ravelry.
ASL Fingerless Mitts (child)
Even though my daughter is hearing, we used sign language to communicate with her when she was an infant. As we learned more, our whole family discovered the joys (and utility) of this language. We also live in a cold weather climate, so I wanted something to keep our hands warm but still make it easy to text, type, and sign.
The adult version (more complicated and with a complete thumb) is still in development.
Even though most of my patterns will be available for purchase, I am making this one available for free.
