bella's mittens

new (free) design available on the sidebar - or here (pdf download). it's a first draft - need to take some decent photos in sunlight after the mitts are fully dry.

these were inspired by mittens kristen stewart wears as bella in the movie twilight. yeah, admit it - you're obsessed too!

I just love your mittens, they are my next project.

Michelle said...

Beautiful gloves, I mean really beautiful! I've officially lost my cool 'tween-thirty something status 'cause I haven't seen the movie yet. But in my defense it's not appropriate for my 2 year old. Or is it...?

malaraky said...

you rock!!

I can't believe how fast you got this done already, and the pattern posted too!! I bet these are going to get queued on Ravelry like hotcakes...

LizKnits said...

Love em... gives me one more way to obsess. Thanks for sharing!

Kimberley said...

Hey, is there any chance you sell those mittens, or know where I can find similar ones? They're great!!
Thanks,
Kimberley

Jessie said...

Ashley said...

Sweet! I was going to work these up myself--thanks for saving me the trouble! :)

Claudia (craftygrl) said...

LOVED the movie and LOVE the mittens! Thanks so much for sharing it!!

purlgurl said...

Thanks so much! I loved those mitts in the movie - so excited to make a pair.

Could you post the pattern with an alteration to be convertible mittens? I'd love you forever!

Aimee said...

You are an amazingly generous person. i just wanted to thank you, thank you, thank you, for giving us access to the pattern for free

Jenny Girl said...

Oh yes I'm a wee bit obsessed!
Just saw the movie yesterday and thought it was wonderful! Throughly enjoyed it and hope the sequel is just as good.
Thanks for this great pattern.
I am so making these :)

erica-knits said...

Yes! I was waiting for these to be made! Thanks for sharing the pattern. :)

Shellie said...

A friend just sent me a link to your site, and let me say, I just love it!!
I am working on the Bella mittens, and am close to the right/left gusset. This is the first time I have made mittens, so forgive me, but I can't figure out where the thumb hole is. I understand I need to use the eleven stiches around the thumb hole to knit the thumb cover itself. But I just can't figure out in the instructions where that hole is. I would hate to just keep knitting and mess the whole project up.

daisyfields said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!...for making this pattern available...my daughter will LOVE these!!! You are basically...fantastic!

I didn't even like the movie but I *loved* the mittens she wore. Thanks for the pattern, I'll make myself a pair once I'm done with my Christmas knitting.

cr99ist03in said...

This is PERFECT!! Thank you so much! All I could find were fingerless gloves in a ribbed pattern and that SO was not what she wore. This is great! I'm so excited! Thanks a lot!

Leah said...

Not ashamed to admit it: soooo obsessed!

Thanks for the rockin' pattern!

laura said...

Hi, The gloves are amazing!! You did a great job ^_^ I'm sure a million people have asked you this, but is there anyway I could commission you to make a pair of the gloves for me? Thanks!

Koshke said...

LE GLEE!! Right after I saw the movie I hoped on ravelry to try to find a pattern for these mittens...now there is a pattern for them.
THANKS

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. I can't wait to try it out.

Shellie said...

Hey, just wanted to say I finshed both mittens and they're great. I did them in a tourquiose cotton and they are thick, warm and bright!

1to1 said...

I made a pair for DD13 and a somewhat matching earflap beanie for xmas. Thanks so much for sharing....I will probably make myself some after the holidays.

Amanda Gambill said...

Have you thought about making and selling these? I'm a beginner knitter and these terrify me but I want a pair real badly. I would pay. Let me know! (amandaguice@yahoo.com)

Lora said...

Just want to say thanks a million for the pattern. I'm working on my second pair now. You rock!

Melynda said...

I'm making a pair for my student assistant at work: she's a very fashionable young woman who loves Twilight, and I appreciate your generosity in making this pattern available for free. Thanks very much!

Allisone said...

Thank you for the pattern. These are the only mittens my daughter will actually wear. This was a quick and easy knit thanks to your well written pattern.

Marcia said...

Is there any chance that you would make and sell a pair?

Jessica said...

Thanks so much for sharing this! I am a beginner knitter, but I am going to attempt to make some of these anyway!!

.o0*Rachelle*0o. said...

I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a pair of mittens like Bella's. I know you have probably gotten a million requests, but are you at all interesting in making and selling another pair? I have no idea how to knit...kinda wish I did now seeing how amazing your mittens turned out!

Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks so much and nice job!

The actual mittens are from a lovely lady named Ruth Cross at www.ruthcross.com. I just emailed her and she is going to start producing them again for twilighters. She also does fingerless and capped styles in several colours. Check out her website and email her, tell her you want the same as 'Vanessa' if you wish to order identical ones.

RUTH CROSS said...

Dear FANS OF BELLAS MITTENS EVERYWHERE,

WE ARE THE MAKERS OF HER MITTENS!!! For winter 2007 we supplied this long cabled mitten to Aubergine of Portland which is where the Twilight costume designer Wendy Chuck found them.

We have only just realised how many new fans there are and especially for YOU we have re-issued these mittens which are available to order at http://www.ruthcross.com/acatalog/copy_of_Button_Collar.html. Each pair is knitted by hand in the UK using supersoft Scottish lambs wool by our knit company RUTH CROSS.

We are extremely flattered at the lengths you have all gone to to find (and in some cases make) these so we have included a detailed picture on the site so you can get a good view of the original pair designed and made by us.

Best wishes Ruth and the team!

Krystyna said...

I LOVE TWILIGHT! and these mittens. I know people have asked you but are you willing to make and sell a pair of these mittens. I would so pay for everything. I just don't have the talent to make them.

Thank you so much for the pattern!! I have found a couple others, but none that were free, or looked quite right. I was quite intrigued by Bella's mittens in the movie, and I kept seeing them on sale at Etsy.com (a tip for all those people who really want a pair, but can't knit!) and then I began to really want a pair of mittens for myself. I wasn't sure I had it in me to knit mittens, but I just finished my left one, and it looks amazing!! Your pattern was very clear and precise, and with a little bit of help from online resources, it worked just fine for my first mitten project. A word to those of you with smaller hands: I made my mitten with cascade 220 on size 6 needles, and they turned out utterly perfect for my smaller-sized hands, no blocking required! I can't wait to start on the next one!

Melly said...

Just marvelous! You really rock!
I have just finished the mittens for my daughter and she loves them!
The only thing I have changed (I looked at the picture at Ruth Cross's page): I made the palm side of the mittens in moss-stitch.
If you wish you could have a look at them on my blog.
Thanks so much for sharing the pattern! It's very nicely written and supereasy to follow! Great work!
love and hugs
Melly

Just made these for my Twihard daughter. The originals are in Entertainment Weekly.
Great, easy pattern.

Anne said...

I have just finished knitting five pair of these delightful mittens. My daughter forwarded this pattern to me so that I could provide her with these handknit gifts for her friends who love the movie. As a "german style" knitter, it only took a few days to knit these mittens and I thank you for the excellent directions. Thank you for your talent and for sharing this pattern......

You're really good at knitting. I tried the pattern but they came out tight and not looking as good as yours. do you know why???? I also have a random question. do you think you could find out the pattern for these. you would get alot of people visiting your site becuase you can't find a pattern like it.

Here's the website, or one of them

thanks so much for posting this for free! it was my first mitten project and i completely understood your pattern so thanks again!

Maren McCoy Kyle said...

My confusion with the pattern is this:

You make it sounds like you only need to do magic loop at the beginning, but all the magic loop info I find makes it seem like something continuous.

Kari said...

Just saw the movie this weekend on Blu-ray and I fell in love with Bella's mittens (even though it's almost summer!)
Thank you so much for sharing your pattern, I can't wait to get them knitted up!

Liz said...

Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. I decided to knit these for my daughter for her birthday gift. I made one today. It's a fun pattern to knit and I love the way it looks. I think she'll really love them. It seems fans are paying quite a bit for the original mittens. Wow!

knittingdragonflies said...

Wow! I love these, they would be perfect to walk my dogs in. Now I have to find some yarn....

I just love Bella's mittens! I just love twilight and I am not a big mitten fan but when I saw hers I just had to have them!! Now I will!!

I know how to knit and all so I went out and got me some yarn to make a pair for myself since I am poor. I am making them from red heart Grey Heather yarn. It has enough in on skein for the pair. This will be a fun project and perfect since the cold weather is coming. I really can't afford the wool so I'll just use red heart yarn. Thank you soo much for posting this pattern!! it is a huge help!!!!
