Blue and chocolate brown crochet owl hat

I’ve just finished a special order for an owl hat for a young lady I met at the ‘Handmade with Love’ craft fair in Tunbridge Wells a couple of weeks ago.

She chose a lovely blue owl hat for her cousin and had been saving her pocket money up so she could buy one for herself. But, her lovely mummy emailed me and explained that she had been saving up for a blue owl hat of her own but she wanted to buy it for her as a surprise!

The young lady had originally wanted a blue owl hat but didn’t want to be exactly the same as her cousin so I was asked if could I do something a bit different for her in blue and her favourite chocolate brown. Well, I love a challenge so I came up with a brown and blue striped design just for her.  It has a lovely jumbo flower at the ear and sparkly blue eyes.

I really hope she likes it!

All my owl hats are handmade using high quality cotton yarns and can of course be made as big (or small) as required and in lots of different color combinations! I sell a pink owl, a hot pink and turquoise owl and a blue owl from stock and I can make other colors to order. I can even do stripey owls! If you would like to order a special owl hat please email me at or check out my FAQs.

Edited: I had a wonderful email including a photo of the owl and a blue stripey monkey hat on holiday in Barbados! Just to prove you can wear a Ruby & Custard hat anywhere!
