Wisp Mittens feature lots of texture in twisted stitches and garter for a cozy, fast, and fun project. Use a strand of DK weight held along with laceweight mohair for a soft and fluffy halo, or sub in your favorite worsted weight yarn you already have stashed. Three sizes make these perfect for anyone on your gift list. Choose a favorite solid or semi solid color to show off your stitch work!

This pattern assumes knowledge of working in the round, working twisted stitches, increases, and decreases. Both charts and written directions are provided for all stitch patterns. A video tutorial link is included for the twisted decreases used in the pattern.
