Knitting with different yarns

I’m planning to knit mittens that I have a pattern for that calls for several different colors of sport yarn. But I have a gorgeous worsted yarn (it’s on the thin side though). And that would be my main color but I would use stashed sport yarn for the rest.
What problems can I expect to run into using different weighted yarns or should I only use sport weight.
Thank you.

If the pattern calls for a range close to 23-24sts/4inches you may get it to work. The best thing to do is to knit a swatch with the light worsted and continue after several inches with the sport weight. See how the 2 work together and how close you can come to gauge.
