The first set that I'd like to introduce you to was inspired by a pattern I found for Bella's mittens. If you aren't familiar with who Bella is, she is the star of the book series and movie Twilight. They are these fantastic elbow length mittens that are super warm and super cute either slouched down or pulled up high with a long sleeve shirt and vest.
I found a great pattern for them, but decided to add my own twist to it. I replaced the suggested inward cable pattern below with my own cable pattern that happens to match a hat I was knitting at the time. Not a huge difference, but enough to make it my own and make it match one of my favorite hats.
Here are the old and new versions:
To go along with that I am going to pair it with the cable knit hat and one of my short curly scarflettes, for what I think is a very elegant set. The mittens are on sale now! The rest of the set is coming in the next few days so stay tuned!!
What do you think?
Until next time,
the girl behind the lama
