Juliet's 2x2 Rib Mitts

This mitt pair is decorated with a delicate 6 stitch x 6 row lace repeat on its upper side from cuff to fingers, and stockinette on its reverse allowing the tapering of nicely-long cuffs to be easily managed.  Mitts are worked in the round and trimmed on each end with 2x2 ribbing.  The lace pattern is both written and charted.
