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!
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.
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.
Comment on this post and let me know which color was your favorite! On July 17th I will randomly select one of the comments and send the commenter a skein of their favorite yarn color! US residents only.
If you make any Claire Bun Beanies using Hobby Lobby’s clearance yarn tag me in your pics! I would love to see how they worked up! With variegated yarn, each beanie looks unique and I love the variety you get when using the exact same colorway!
