A lovely and leafy lace cuff is set off by a smooth stockinette hand and a pretty, contrasting-color underlayer peeking out from beneath. Thumb shaping is part welt, part flap for a perfect fit. Wear them solo or with Verduri scarf or shawl.

Verduri mitts are knitted in the round from the bottom up. Contrasting color underlayer is worked separately, then joined with top layer using 3-needle join.
