Pattern: Bella's Mittens
Yarn: Alize Lanagold Classic 60 g
Needle: DPNS 4 mm
Time to knit: 2 days
When my daughter told me that she would prefer if I'd knit her mittens instead of gloves I was quite taken aback, as I've never liked mittens. Her argument was that gloves with their separated fingers made her small hands freeze, while mittens would allow her to keep her fingers clenched together in the freeze cold winter mornings on her way to school.
And then I saw these Bella Mittens on Ravelry and I instantly knew that I had found the ultimate mittens for Gaby. Not only is she a huge fan of the Twilight books and films, but the mittens are the first and only (so far) mittens that I actually like a lot.
And they also turned out to be THE BEST written mittens ever! The description is flawless and clear. The horseshoe cable pattern produces a perfect elegant form and a beautiful round finish at the fingertips. I had almost a full skein left from my red sweater, so I made them full arms length to keep her warm.
No matter how hard I tried (and I did) I couldn't get the right color of the mittens on these pictures - it's a beautiful deep blood red and not this tomato red that you see (so you'll have to use your imagination a bit :)
