I made a mistake by ordering the wrong size of hat and when I message Carlyn, shop owner, to send me another one in the right size if possible.. she not only MADE ME a newborn size hat over night, she took back the wrong size hat no questions asked, even though it was clearly all my fault. So nice!! Couldn't have been a better shop to work with!! Much recommended!!

LittleSweetOne is about creating a handmade baby hat that’s a keepsake. It’s to remember how tiny your little one was, to have an amazing photo prop, or to find that one-of-a-kind baby gift for your loved one. It’s about “A knit of love.”

My interest in learning to knit came after my daughter, Kailey was born. My mother-in-law, Colleen, would knit the cutest little hats for her to wear. So, one day with Colleen at my side she taught me the craft of knitting. I loved it! It was amazing to me to see a ball of yarn turn into a cute little baby hat. The idea of opening an Etsy shop came to mind when people at the grocery store, restaurant, etc. would ask where they could get one after seeing my little one wearing the knit hats.

In Spring 2012, we opened up our Etsy Shop. I manage the business side, graphic design and knitting of the hats. Colleen adds her talented knitting work to the shop too. Together we make a great team!

I’m a mom to a busy toddler, wife and and graphic designer. Creating hats for LittleSweetOne is something I really enjoy. I love working with different types of yarn and seeing a design vision turn into a cute little baby hat!

Colleen as mentioned above is my mother-in-law, but more than a great friend. We work together seamlessly. She’s a part-time nurse and part-time baby-sitter for my on-the-go toddler. She has years of knitting experience and I definitely learned to knit from the best.

Being part of the Etsy community is something we enjoy and we’re excited to see where LittleSweetOne will take us in the future. Thanks for stopping by our shop. We hope you love our LittleSweetOne hats as much as we do!
