Juliet's Openwork Mitts
This mitt pair is decorated with a somewhat floral 6 stitch x 4 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 2x1 ribbing. The lace pattern is both written and charted.
