Bella's Mittens

I love these mittens I first noticed these when they started showing up on my friends projects page over on Ravelry. and I just knew I just had to make a pair... but the "Magic Loop" technique scared the crap out of me. but when Kelli asked for a pair for her upcoming Birthday, I had no more excuses, For me the Magic Loop was a disaster.
I ended up breaking 2 sets of circular needles, before switching to a set of dpns which work better for me anyway!
I know I'll be making at least 2 more pairs...

    Hi: I have knit 4 pair of Bella's Mittens. My GD's roomates wanted them too. A friend tried the magic loop, but it did not work for her either. I used dpns. My GDs love them because they keep their wrists warm! Peg

    Beautiful! I so much look forward to having mine... I too knit them on dpns. I never used magic loop but would like to try it some time (although I like my dpns)... I think you're not alone... Good job! They are awesome in green (just like Bella's)!
