It’s time for the big reveal! Drum roll please!

Tada, our new line is none other than Blue’s Clue’s hats. My son loves Blue’s Clues, he watches all the old episodes on Netflix, yay Netflix. Now I do not own Blue’s Clues or anything, of course, but I was hoping it wouldn’t be too bad to have a hat based on each character.

 The first one I did was the green puppy hat, it ended up being a little smaller than I meant to (it was supposed to fit Bob but it’s more like for a 1 year old). It was cute, and I used tapestry crochet techniques to put two spots on the hat. The ears are cute and small like Green Puppy’s.

The second one was Blue and it was big enough for Bob, a 2 year old hat with room to grow. This time I decided to crochet the spots separately and sew them on. I think this gave it a more dynamic look and they were more circular too. The ears were big, floppy, and spotted, like Blue’s.

The third one as Rami’s size, she is 7, but it is also super stretchy and had a fold over so it could fit a wide range of sizes (including me). The ears were big and floppy again and I repeated the spots (but more of them) but the fun part was the stitch I used, I did TC this time, first time making a hat like that, and it gave it a springy feeling and also made it stretchy as I said.

Lastly I made a Periwinkle hat. This one was a little harder because of the triangular stripes he has on his cheeks. I decided to make it more of a stripe than just a triangle and it took some fiddling with to get it just the way I wanted it. I then had to sew them on like the spots were sewn on. This one I did mostly in HDC which was again new for me and created a closer knit look. It is super springy so I could tuck my pony tail in if I wanted but not too loose to wear normally. I did a fun trim to make it unique.

All the hats are soft and cuddly and pleasing to the eye. I was very pleased with how they turned out and hope you love them all. They will be launched over the next 4 days so if you don't see the one you want in the shop today check back tomorrow.
