Pretty fingerless mitts with a buttoned lace cuff. The cuff, featuring drooping elm leaf pattern, is worked back and forth and then stitches are picked up along one edge and the rest of the mitt is knit in the round downwards. Thumb increases and a single leaf motif on the back of the hand echo the lace cuff. Requiring just a small amount of fingering weight yarn, Veyla are the perfect way to use a special, luxury yarn.

Both written and charted directions are provided for the cuffs.
