Well, roughly.  Wink  These are thumbless hand warmers loosely based on those worn by Kate Winslet in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".  My version is made from Noro "Lily" (silk/cotton blend) and Classic Elite "Imagine" (cotton/rayon blend):

No pattern.  I don't even read patterns, actually (never learned).  I just play around with things until they work.  I'd be happy to give you a rough idea, though.  Smiley

They're knitted.  And addicting is..perhaps an understatement.  I knit everywhere I have a spare minute.  I find it hard to watch foreign films these days because subtitles get in the way of knitting.  Wink

This yarn is a DK weight, so I used US 3 double points for a fairly dense knit.

Cast on 14 stitches per needle in blue.
Knit 4 rows in the round.
Loosely join black yarn.  Knit 1 row black.
Pick up blue yarn and knit 4 rows.
Pick up black and knit 1 row.
Repeat pattern to desired length.
Knit one blue row.
Create thumb hole using one-row buttonhole technique found here.  The thumb holes in these are 10 stitches wide.
Finish the remaining rows in the blue block.
Knit 1 black row.
Knit 4 blue rows.
Knit 1 black row.
Knit 1 blue row.
Create rib kit (knit 1, purl 1) for 4 rows in blue.
Bind off loosely and sew in all your ends.

If I had it to do over again, I'd do a rib knit at the bottom, too.  The rolled edge looks kinda cool and slouchy, but I'd prefer the neatness of ribbing.

If you plan to make something like this, I'd suggest using a self-striping yarn instead of working with two colors.  You'll get a cleaner look (these have a "seam").  The yarn I used is especially unforgiving and shows everything.  If you do use one yarn, you'll want to keep track of how many rows you knit.  My method (monkey no like count) makes things much simpler.
