This pattern is part of the class, Mittens and Gloves Galore.

The cuff of a mitten doesn’t always have to be made in the round; it can be knit flat to change things up. It also makes it easier to ensure that stitches are not twisted when you begin to work in the round. In this pattern, the cuff is knit flat in a simple lace pattern, then stitches are picked up along the cuff edge to make the mitten, which features a gusset thumb and mitten toe finish. Much of the technique for a standard toe of a sock is used for the top of a mitten, hence the name mitten toe. The decreases are worked up the sides of the mitten to the top giving a nice curve to the mitten and allowing the stitch pattern to continue as long as possible on the top of the mitten.
