Notes on the Store Sample: 

These mitts feature an easy lace pattern that mimics cable stitches and is very suitable for knitters that are comfortable working in the round, and working yo's and m1 increases, and k2tog and ssk decreases.

We did the medium size for the shop sample using magic loop on 40 inch #6 needles. 

Increases for the thumb gusset are intended to be done at the end of the round only, not at the end of both repeats of the lace motif in the round.

After finishing the thumb, the pattern advises continuing the lace motif for 4 more rows and then repeating the ribbing to finish.  This left most of the fingers exposed with a significant amount of yarn left in the first skein.  We decided to continue repeating the lace motif rows until the mitt reached the base of the wearer's pinky nail (about 3 more inches) before beginning the ribbing making for a warmer mitt with sufficient yarn still left in the first skein to finish the larger size to the same point as well.

Yak, like cashmere is a super soft luxury fiber that requires being oiled to spin.  This makes the fibers less fuzzy while knitting.  Blocking (washing) is required to remove the oil and reveal the Katara's truly special nature.
