New Pattern – Bella’s Mittens

with 12 comments

I lost a lot of sleep this week, but I managed to finish the pattern. I really like how the mittens turned out, and I think I’ll wear them to the movie when I go tomorrow. Hopefully the movie isn’t sold out in my town! Enjoy!

Bella’s Mittens

I fell in love with the mittens that Bella wears in the movie Twilight and had to have a pair of my own. The extra long mittens come almost to the elbow, and the intricate pattern looks impressive when finished. Anyone with basic knowledge of cables can knit these mittens, and they are a quick knit due to the bulky gauge. The result is a super dense material for even the coldest nights in Forks. Hot vampires not included.


3 skeins of Plymouth Yarn Encore Worsted in gray (600 yards)

6mm/US 10 circular needles

5.5mm/US 9 circular needles

2 stitch markers

scrap yarn

tapestry needle


28stitches and 22 rows=4 inches stockinette

How to Buy

Pay for your copy of this pattern via Paypal and I will email you a PDF version of the pattern. If any errata are found I will automatically email you any pattern updates in the future. I hope to have it available to download on Ravelry soon.

  2. Is there anyway that you could show the palm of the mittens in a picture? I bought the pattern and love it so far, obviously just started, but would like an image of the palm for visual purposes. Thank you so much.

  12. […] I finished Twilight again last week. Also New Moon and Eclipse. I don’t really want to get Breaking Dawn in hardback if I can resist (I may not be able to…), but in the meantime, although I don’t need any more hand-based projects, I may have to knit these. […]
