These were knit up in Knitpicks Panache and Rowan Cork. The mittens done in Panache are for my mom and sisters for Christmas. The rosy-colored cork mittens are for my MIL and the fun green ones (with the scarf) are for me!

Those look really good. I want some! Where did yo find that pattern? I've been looking for a pattern of just plain mittens for awhile, but haven't been able to find one.

I love that pattern too. Yours look great! How much Panache did you use for a pair? I'd love to make some more and adore Panache.

I definitely needed 2 skeins of panache for a pair, but I had plenty left over. I made a ski band with the left over yarn. You could buy 3 skeins and make 2 pairs of mittens in the same color. The yardage needed is on the pattern that Duckie posted. All of mine were child's large mittens except for the rosy-purple ones. We all have pretty small hands and the Women size is quite big on me.

How about this pattern for dpn: http://knitting.about.com/library/blmittens.htm

You can also try the Family Circle Easy Knitting Fall edition. They had a great dpn pattern, but I tried it and had some probs so switched to this one: http://www.fceasyknitting.com/  Maybe you could find it at your local library since it's not in shops anymore.
