Tag Archives: Carola’s Mitts


Thanks to a combo of remnants swaps and leftovers from my own projects, I wound up with a fair amount of Dale Baby Ull in my stash. So to help reduce that amount, I did a couple of small colorwork projects earlier this year.

I stumbled upon the Carola’s Mittens pattern ages ago – I think someone may have faved it – and bookmarked it, but for some reason I never got around to using it. Until now:

Pattern: Carola’s Mittens by Juliana Frychel
Yarn: Dale Baby Ull in 5755 and 5135
Needles: US0 / 2.0mm and US3 / 3.25mm Inox DPNs

The obvious modification was making these fingerless mitts, since I have very little use for mittens. (Okay, so that didn’t stop me from making Anemoi Mittens back in the day, but I think I’ve gotten slightly more practical in the past few years.) Not a super intuitive knit, but I found it really fun anyway. And I dig the finished product!

And because I hadn’t hit my fingerless mitts limit yet, I made another pair:

Pattern: Based on Border Socks by Mary Jane Mucklestone
Yarn: Dale Baby Ull in 5755, 7436, and 7502
Needles: US0 / 2.0mm and US1 / 2.5mm Inox DPNs

I kind of wish I’d gone up a needle size for the colorwork, but otherwise I like these, too.

So, I’ve gotten some of my Baby Ull out of the way. Now I just have to figure out what the heck to do with the rest!
