CP#2 is the kind of kid that rarely gets cold. The temperature could be 20º outside and you’d find him in short sleeves waiting for the bus. His mother, on the other hand, is shivering nearly all the time. Maybe that’s why MP is always on the lookout for cute, warm things. If she’s going to be cold six months of the year, MP figures she might as well have some colorful winter gear to enjoy.

With this thought in mind, you can imagine MPs delight when she discovered Yarmouth-based Betty Louise Studio. Studio owner Katie Chalmers creates adorable hats for adults and kids. Katie crochets all of her wool hats by hand, and her attention to detail shows.


All of Katie’s hats are hand washable, and fit perfectly with regular wear.

Just in time for the chilly weekend ahead, Katie has generously offered to giveaway a child’s hat (3T-5T) to one lucky Cute Potato winner. All you need to do is comment below. Contest ends Saturday, January 17, 2015 at midnight EST.

Good luck and stay warm, everybody!

Congratulations to lucky #1—Jillaine Geary! Jillaine has won a child’s hat from Betty Louise Studio. Thanks to everyone who entered. We’ll have another great giveaway coming up soon!

There’s something so endearing about a child wearing a fun hat. MP came across this crocheted owl hat on Etsy and she’s thinking it would look great with CP#1’s red winter coat.

To learn more about Shanna and her work, visit her Etsy shop.
