On one side, a parliament of owls keeps watch beneath a twinkling night sky. On the reverse, a collection of spells—turn palms up and read Expecto Patronum! Accio Wand! Incendio! Quietus! and more. These mittens are a handy reference for any wizard on the go, and an essential study tool for any fifth-year student at Hogwarts hoping to pass the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams! Knitted in stranded colorwork using a warm Shetland wool and sized for adults in small, medium, and large, this is a great project for practicing two-handed colorwork and experimenting with yarn dominance.

Note: Mittens are sized by adjusting needle size and gauge.
