Popular Colors in 2018 and Predictions for 2019 Knits

At the end of the year I always find it interesting to reflect on which colors of our mittens were the most popular. Year after year, black, purple, and red are always in the top five. Did they make the cut in 2018? Let's find out!

1a. Red

Red moved up from second place to be this year's winner! It's such a nostalgic classic that it's really no surprise.

1b. Ocean

Ocean actually tied with red for first place this year. After not making the list last year, that's quite an accomplishment! We've seen a lot of interest in this color since it's so similar to the mittens that Frozen's Anna wears.

2. Dark Sage

This one is another newcomer to the list! This dark green is practical and works well for both men and women. I also was asked to knit a pair of mittens in this color as a Christmas gift for a family member. If you count that pair, brings this color into the second place slot.

3a. White

Third place was a two-way tie. White tends to be popular with winter brides who want to stay warm. It's new to the most popular list this year.

3b. Black Sparkle

Moving to the opposite end of the spectrum we have black sparkle. This is one of my favorites. It's yet another newcomer to the list.

Last year's popular colors were dominated by pinks. This year was much more neutral, with the exception of classic red. I wonder what 2019 will bring?
