Knit Messy Bun Hats & Headbands

All of our knitted headbands are on sale this week. One style is wide enough to work as a messy bun hat or a neck cowl. Talk about a multitasker!

Shop the sale

This is the wider style of the two headbands. It has a snug fit for maximum warmth.


The narrower headband takes on a loose braided style and looks great from all angles! These headbands are a perfect match to our infinity scarves. Available individually or as a set of three.


Scarves, baby hats and afghans, and crochet shop towels are also on sale this week!

Top Colors of 2017 - Bestselling Knit Picks

As 2017 comes to a close I thought I'd share the top three (well, six!) colors for mittens in 2017.

#1 - Black

Last year's leader, red, was displaced by classic black this year.


#2 - Red, Soft Pink, and Watermelon

Second place was a three way tie between some warm colors!




#3 - Sunshine and Royal Blue

In third place is another tie! Sunshine wasn't as possible as it was in years past (looks like people are moving on from LEGO-themed Halloween costumes) but still sold several pairs.



With a vibrant purple being selected as Pantone's color of the year for 2018, I'm excited to see if people will still prefer classic black and red or if some brighter colors will edge those out to be best sellers.

Did you know we make our mittens in at least 50 different colors? There's bound to be one you'll like. :)

Marion's Mittens is Five!

Wow, I can't believe Marion's Mittens on Etsy turned five this year! It all started with a visit to Marion on an October day when she asked me to sell some mittens for her. I don’t think either of us imagined we’d come this far. 



Today I’ll be visiting her again to pick up some new colors and knit together. Oh, and if you’re subscribed to our email list, you will have received a special offer in your inbox this morning to thank you for being a part of us.
