Bella’s Mittens!

For the past year I have been kind of eying Bella’s grey mittens, and since the season is starting to change here, i thought now would be a great opportunity to get a move on!

Ruth Cross, the company that designs the mittens, sells them for about $80.00 ( they no longer cary the mittens). If you google the mittens, it is not hard to find the pattern which spread all around the internet 🙂

The Linkk that is posted at the bottum will bring you to a blog which has a free download of the pattern to knit Bella’s mittens. Before you click, i just want to fill you in on a couple of things.

Official Bella mittensThis is a picture of the actual mittens from Ruth Cross. Please notice the inside of the hand on the mittens. I do not knit so forgive my ignorance, I do not know the name of the stitch on the palm side of the hand. I do however want to point out that the stitch on the palm side is a little bit different in the download pattern. Since my mother is in love with knitting i asked her if she wouldn’t mind making these for me. What she is going to do it use the pattern I pulled up from that awesome blog, and substitute the stitching (on the palm side of the hand) from the download with the actual stitching pattern from the original mittens.

ALSO! the original was made using super soft scottish lambs wool.

So here is the link to the blog, i hope you all enjoy it!!!!! 😀

    Does your mom know the type of stitch on the palm of Bella’s mittens? I’ve been looking through some stitch dictionaries and haven’t a clue…lucky you to have a mom to knit you a pair 🙂

      Yes! She does actually! It took us a while too but we figured it out! I’ll tell you exactly what she did and what the name of the stitch is…as soon as she picks up her cell phone………….

      I’ll write back ASAP 🙂 Promise!

      Okay! So the name of the stitch (or the stitch that looks very similar to it!) is called the Moss Stitch. What my mother did which actually works out a lot easier (i will be posting this soon) is she went to ravelry.com. She signed up real fast and went to the search bar. there are subjects for the search – she searched under patterns and typed in Bellas Mittens. She found the person Nancy Fri (should be around the 4th page) who posted the pattern. what she did was use the Subliminalrabbit pattern up to a certain point, and changed the pattern for the palms of the hands. Its pretty awesome! Also! we found the pattern for the matching hat Bella wears in the La Push scene! 🙂 Hope this helps alot!!!! happy knitting! 🙂

    Hello 🙂
    Ok so you have me stumped. The mittens they are selling on Ruth Cross… are they the same as the originals or not?

      The Ruth Cross website is advertising THE original mittens. Here is the website:
      http://www.ruthcross.com/acatalog/Ruth_Cross_hand_knits.html

      On this website the maker actually writes a little tidbit about the mittens. Unfortunately it says they are out of stock. However, it does say you can be put on a waiting list and will be notified when it is your turn to order. think of all the twilight fans purchasing these things! Ruth Cross must have her hands full! I’m not exactly sure how you go about signing up for the waiting list, but there is a contact page you can email her to ask about it.

      hope this helps! And good luck with your mitten search! 🙂
