Twilight - Bella's Mittens

Bella’s Mittens from the movie “Twilight”

Originally designed by Ruth Cross

You can also find an article about the craze here

Many Twilight fans have fallen in love with these mittens and subliminalrabbit
(subliminalrabbit: bella's mittens)
came up with a pattern for us knitters to make them.

What a great and also free pattern and a great knit!
The only thing I have changed: I worked the palm side of the hands in moss-stitch.

And hey, why should I pay a freaking 80$ just for mittens,
which I can knit myself and also have some fun time knitting them up?
I am making my twilight-mad daughter Donna very very happy
and once again I get the "Cool Mom" attribute *lol*!

I love love love these mittens, they are very cozy and very warm!
(but they are, as said, not for me....*pout*)

Now off I go to knit some up for daughter no. 2…gg

I used Wolle Rödel Maxi (50% superwash merino and 50% acrylic, bulky-weight)
and size 5 mm needles. One mittens knits up in about 4 hours.
