About MarionsMittens

Sales 1,150
On Etsy since 2012

Handknit mittens, scarves and more for adults, kids, and babies.

The Marion's Mittens shop was created when a grandmother (Marion) asked a granddaughter (Laura) to help sell some mittens she'd knitted. We set up an Etsy shop that very day and got off to a great start. There are lots of people who want to wear or gift mittens like the ones their own grandmothers might make. That's what you'll find in our shop!

Marion's mittens and baby sweaters are knitted from Marion's patterns dating back more than 70 years to the 1940s. She's certainly a pro and has knitted thousands of pairs. Laura learned to knit from Marion. She creates the mini mittens for babies and toddlers as well as the children’s sizes. Both Marion and Laura have won prizes for their work and judges have described the work as being "precise” and “beautifully finished."

Our mittens are knitted in the round using small double pointed needles (size 2, 3, or 4). Small stitches result in a tight knit. These mittens fit more snugly and keep you warmer than mittens that are knitted or crocheted in chunky patterns using large needles. Our method takes longer but we really prefer the result! An adult pair takes a full day to complete, while the smaller sizes take a few hours to knit.

Our knitted items are made from acrylic yarn which is soft, stretchy, and machine washable. It's also great for people with skin sensitivities and allergies who might have reactions to the lanolin in wool. For those who prefer a natural fiber, we occasionally offer items that have been knitted from alpaca fiber or superfine merino wool.

You'll also find scarves and baby afghans in our shop. Knitted and crocheted by one of Marion's daughters, these items are available in a variety of colors and make great gifts!

Frequently asked questions

Measuring for mittens

Measurements are available in each listing. These are approximate; because our items are handmade, dimensions may vary slightly. Sizing by age is designed for an average fit. You may also trace your hand or your child's hand on paper and measure the dimensions. Do not include the cuff in measurements, especially for babies and small children, who naturally have a slight curl in their hand.

Why are Marion's Mittens special?

Marion's Mittens are knitted by hand from acrylic yarn. We love this material because it's machine washable, durable, and good for people with skin sensitivities or allergies. Knitted by hand using small (size 2, 3, or 4) double pointed needles, our mittens are tightly knit to keep you warm.

Our traditional mittens are knitted from a pattern designed more than 60 years ago by Marion. These are the classic mittens that YOUR grandma used to make! They are soft and stretchy.

We also offer knitted and crocheted scarves and baby afghans, as well as finely knitted baby sweater sets.

Custom and personalized orders

100% of the payment is due in advance for custom orders. Custom orders are taken based on our availability to complete them within your time frame. Everything is handmade and each pair of mittens takes hours to complete. We can accommodate these requests with a reasonable lead time, however! For large orders, assume one week for every three pairs of mittens needed.
