Knit for 1/2" then make an eyelet row as follows: (K 2 tog, yo, K1), repeat across row ending in K1.  (8 eyelets)
After eyelet row, return to knitting until piece reaches a total of 2.5" from cast on row.

You can also make a fancy top for the mittens: sc in any stitch at cuff, ch 4, sc into 3rd stitch from the ch, continue around the entire cuff and end with a sc in first sc.

(or use double pointed needles for knitting in the round - you will knit one row, purl one row except on decrease)
