About the Designer:

Welcome, my creative friend! My name is Marie Greene, and I’m the stylist and knitter behind the scenes (and needles) of Olive Knits.  I learned to knit at my grandmother’s side when I was around 10 or 11 years old and – as my family and friends can attest – I never put my needles down.

I love spreadsheets, Nordic Noir, sturdy bags with handles, rainy days and dinner parties. And as crazy as it sounds, I love early early mornings and Mondays.

I love seamless sweaters because of their efficiency and portability. I visualize a design based on pieces I want in my closet – pieces I believe you might want in YOUR closet – and I translate them into a process that makes them a joy to create.

Effortless, Seamless Style

Because you shouldn’t have to choose between a creative experience, functionality and a brilliant closet.
