Pattern notes
These mittens begin with a provisional cast on, then a few rounds of plain stockinette, before working the cuff chart. After a round of purl stitches, the cuff is then turned and joined, before the mitten body is worked from a chart with an integrated thumb gusset. Thumb stitches are set aside and the mitten top is completed before completing the top of the thumb. An i-cord bind-off completes the cuff. Charts are read from right to left throughout.
