    Slightly odd question I know, but I'm making mittens to sell, and I need to work out average sizes. So if you could tell me their length from the tip of your fingers down to the bottom of your palm, and their breadth at their widest part (where your thumb is when it's lying flat against your hand, and with all fingers together, not spread out), preferably in inches, and also whether you're male or female I'd be very grateful (will give rep).

    6.6 inches wide (if I get my thumb and index finger to make an L shape) and 7 inches long.

    4 inches wide and 7 inches long.
    Thanks. Judging by your username I'm guessing you're male?

    Actually I think your first answer sounds like what I was looking for, I've edited the OP to make it clearer.

    7.4 inches across and top-bottom. Hey you know what they say about someone with big Hands
    You sure about the across measurement? Wouldn't that mean you have square hands? I'm wanting the measurement when all your fingers are together, not spread out.

    tip of your fingers down to the bottom of your palm
    Bit under 4 inches.

    breadth at their widest part (where your thumb is when it's lying flat against your hand, and with all fingers together, not spread out
    2 and a quarter inches.

    I'm female. My hands are far from average for an adult.
