This pattern was originally published as part of the Twisted Mad About Tosh Club in December 2013.

Now you can confuse, befuddle, and misdirect those around you with just a wave of the hands! A pointerrific stack of arrow-like chevrons ornaments this cozy pair of mittens, while a textured palm adds major squish factor. Aran-weight yarn means they knit up quickly, so the whole family can be perplexing wayward travelers in no time!

Yarn - 165 yards/151 meters aran-weight yarn. Shown in Madelinetosh Chunky (which is truly an aran-weight, we promise… 100% superwash merino; 165 yards/151 meters per 4 ounce/113 gram skein), colorway Saffron.

Needles - US #9/5.5mm (or size to get gauge) for working a small item in the round (either double points, or two circulars, or one long circular for magic loop) AND one size smaller for cuff.

Notions - Tapestry needle, several feet of waste yarn, two distinctive stitch markers.

Skill level - Intermediate (right and left twists, Kitchener Stitch, inserting correct motif round).
