local artist spotlight: Colorful Crowns

Looking For That Special Baby Gift? Colorful Crowns Has You Covered!

Carol Ogg knits each Colorful Crown herself and her 16-year-old daughter, Lauren, donates a stitch of her time to each hat for good luck. The Colorful Crowns logo was designed by a friend of Ogg’s whose family lost a baby to a brain tumor. In their honor, Colorful Crowns makes an annual donation to William’s Walk, a fund-raiser for the Brain Tumor Foundation for Kids.

Each hat is knit with Egyptian cotton yarn to fit a newborn to 3-month-old. The hats come packaged in a beautiful, eco-friendly gift box. And because they’re knit with cotton yarn, these adorable toppers make a great year-round gift for babies. Colorful Crowns also will customize hats for special orders, such as sport team colors, whimsical patterns and wild colors.

In describing why she created Colorful Crowns, Ogg said, “I’ve been making hand-knit baby hats as my signature gift for years and, for the past 15 years, have probably knitted enough baby hats to cover a small village. In late 2009, Corporate America dealt me a hand I wasn’t prepared for and I found myself turning 50 and for the first time in my life was unemployed. Finding myself with a lot of extra time on my hands, a passion for wanting to start my own business, and knitting needles all over the house, I put my hands to good use and started knitting like a maniac. It was cheaper than therapy!”

Every baby leaves the hospital with a hat on his or her little head—so why not make it a Colorful Crown? Visit for samples and more information.

    Emily, these are fantastic! I will be ordering one for our new baby boy. These are much cuter than what the hospital provides!
