I liked the idea of having some fingerless mittens with full finger mobility, so these are a bit shorter than some of my other fingerless mittens. But, they don't have to be! If you'd like to lengthen the upper section, so that your fingers have more coverage, it's as simple as can be - merely add some more 3-row repeats of the plain chevron motif before starting that upper striped motif.
