Three Wishes Mittens are featured in the book Faerie Knitting: 14 Tales of Love and Magic. An intermediate level project, they are worked in the round with a thumb gusset. Six buttons, three pairs of “crystals”, are sewn on to reflect magical wishes as described in the accompanying story.

Co-written with New York Times best selling author Alice Hoffman, Faerie Knitting is and entrancing collection of stories of love and loss, trust and perseverance. Seamlessly woven into the plot of each tale is a magical garment or accessory inspired by the bravery and self-reliance of the tale’s heroine and brought to life through an imaginative and bespoke knitting pattern.
