Claire Bun Beanie- Hobby Lobby Clearance Yarn

Did you take advantage of Hobby Lobby’s yarn clearance sale they had at the beginning of the summer? I couldn’t believe it when I saw skeins of I Love This Yarn for only $0.99!! I bought almost every colorway my Hobby Lobby had on their shelf, with the hopes of making a whole bunch of Messy Bun Beanies for my fall prep! I would just like to point out, there is nothing wrong with the clearance yarn, Hobby Lobby was just discontinuing these colors so they marked it down to get it off the shelves faster.

The last two winters, messy bun beanies have been really popular (especially last winter), so I am trying to plan ahead this year so I can stay caught up on orders as best I can. I’m excited to add all these fun colors to my shop this year! I usually don’t offer a bunch of variegated options because its more expensive than the solid colors and my profit margins are smaller, but with the clearance sale, I am able to list all kinds of variegated yarn colors and still keep my profit margins where I like them 😀

I currently have 3 Messy Bun Beanie crochet patterns available in my shop! My best selling beanie, by far, is the Claire Bun Beanie. I made this pattern available so other makers can make and sell Claire Bun Beanies during beanie season too!

Claire Bun Beanie in the color Linen

I wanted to make a Claire Bun Beanie in each of the new yarn colors I got on clearance so you guys can see how they work up! The color name will be in the caption under each photo. They are all Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn brand.

Elements Flower

Wild Flower Winds


Cloudy Sea



Sunrise Sky

Turquoise Sky


Seaspray Stripe



Wildfire Ridge

Each one of the clearance yarn colorways made a BEAUTIFUL Clare Bun Beanie, but I think if I had to choose a favorite it would be the Wild Flower Winds color. I’m a little bias though because those colors were my school colors in middle and high school.

????Giveaway Alert????

    I love the Claire bun beanies. I bought the pattern last season and I made a nice chunk of money for the holidays. Thanks for the wonderful pattern. My favorite color beanie from above has to be wild flower winds. I love orange & navy together ????????

    I’m absolutely in LOVE with the Wildbrush color! Adorable beanies! And I really enjoyed seeing how all of the colors worked up!

  6. Lesly says:

    My favorite that I was able to buy is pasha. But my favorite by far of all the clearance yarn is fantasy and I’m sad I didn’t get to buy any of it not in cotton either. I also like the wild flower winds, I’m currently making a homebody sweater w the skeins I got of that.

  7. Shana says:

    It’s so hard to pick….. so many beautiful colors. I really like the ” Pasha ” color. I am going to purchase this pattern I fell in love with these beanies last winter.

    I LOVE the Fantasy and Seaspray Stripe colorway! It reminds me of mermaids and I love it so much! Both colors are soo beautiful that it’s hard to choose one!

  13. Jennifer says:

    They’re all so pretty, but I’ve never seen Snapdragon before! That one has to be my favorite, right up there with Painted Canyon. 🙂

  14. MandLsCrochet says:

    I love the Fantasy color scheme. Reminds me of mermaids!I was sad that neither of the Hobby lobby’s near me had any ILTY on clearance.

  15. Nicole says:

    I’ve been wanting to try pasha for so long I’m in love with that color way !!! I’m in love with the messy bun hat too it’s been in my cart for so long I can’t wait to make up a few !!!

    Love, love, love all of the colorways you posted. I chose “snapdragon”…it is a stunning depiction of everything I love about the fall season. Thank you for all of your inspirational posts and crochet ideas.

  17. cindy says:

    Hard to chose !!!I like Pasha the most but I also love wildflower winds . I usually stick to solid colors I’m gonna have to experiment now

  18. Olivia says:

    These are all so beautiful! Know that I see them up close I don’t know if I can chose!! A close race between Fantasy and sunrise sky!! Love this pattern! ????????

  19. Jessica C says:

    There are so many beautiful colorways! I love Pasha the most though because I can just imagine some adorable baby beanies with it.

  20. Melissa says:

    Can I say I love them all?? We don’t have a Hobby Lobby here, the nearest one is closet o 200 miles away so I’ve never tried their yarn until I recently ordered some of their I love this cotton (I gotta say, not a fan) But I love the look of all your Claire Bun Beanies especially the one in Firecracker! It really just pops!!

  21. Micia says:

    I love the clarie bun beanie pattern. I was a little intimidated bu the new messy bun beanies everyone wanted but your patten made it so easy to wil them up fast! Hoping to sell more this winter. My favorites, cause I cant pick just one lol, are Pasha and Fantasy

  22. Liliana Mattei says:

    I love them all, but I have to go with the Snapdragon color… I was able to buy one skein that was on clearance, it was the last one. I just love the color in a Claire Bun beanie.????

  23. Paula says:

    I’m loving the fantasy, I did not see that at my local Hobby Lobby.
    I bought your pattern a few weeks ago and I’m making a to of hats for my up coming fall craft fairs. I’m hoping to sell a ton. Thanks for the wonderful pattern.

  24. Jessica Schlick says:

    All of them turned out so pretty but my favorite is the Seaspray Stripe ???????? I love the colors so much!

  25. Wykena says:

    Some of these colors will be missed! I think they need to have a vote so customers can express which yarns are most popular. So many of the colors are so pretty! I will go with Turquoise Sky.

  26. Anissa Soto says:

    Wild Flower Wilds! (I’m from Houston and it reminds me of the Astros) Super gorgeous.

    Funny story, last Christmas my boyfriend asked his mom want she wanted for the holiday and she said a crochet bun beanie, and I was like awesome, I’ll make one for her. The crazy thing is that she had no idea that i even crocheted! So she is obsessed with the beanie and everyone she shows loves it. The relevance to you is that, I bought the Claire Bun Beanie pattern to make it and it was great. I’m still pretty new to crochet and it’s a great pattern and design.

  27. Deb Minero says:

    They are all so gorgeous. I was always drawn to the snapdragon colorway, but never picked it up. Now seeing it worked up, I wish I had.

  28. Sharon says:

    Snapdragon – is my final choice – I think ?!
    Of course-I’ve changed my mind about 10 times now
    they’re all nice colors- very tough decision !
    Snapdragon it is

  29. Amy says:

    Oooo I love the sea spray stripes! I’m really into blues and teals lately. And the pattern is just the cutest! I love them all. I’ve never used that brand of yarn as I’m in Canada and our selection is the worst. But it looks amazing!

  30. Jennifer says:

    I love Elements Flower and Pasha! I tried to get some of each and they were both sold out by the time I made it to Hobby Lobby.

  31. Becky D says:

    I love that SeaSpray color! Just recently bought the Claire Bun beanie pattern and can’t wait to whip some up!

  32. Julie C. says:

    My favorite out of those is firecracker! They’re all so pretty, though. I love how they all work up so differently.

  33. Tara says:

    Omg you’re so awesome! I really love the Seaspray Stripe. Fantasy is a close second and would look ADORABLE in a mermaid tail blanket! ????????

  34. Kristina says:

    I love the fantasy and firecracker colorways! I totally love the pattern too! I plan on buying it here in the next few weeks… my teenagers and I all wear our hair in messy buns or ponies. I kind of want to make some for my daughters cheer team… when it’s cold but high ponies and bows are a must!
