A baby poncho set is perfect for cooler days.

There are so many reasons why I love poncho sets. One, they are perfect for those days when you aren't sure what the whether will be like. Layer on a poncho and you are all set. Two, they can go well with pants, dresses or skirts. Three, they make for wonderful homemade gifts for girls. And four, they are just way cool (maybe I am dating myself with that last comment).

A great lesson to be learned from this poncho set (and precious model) is the importance of choosing color wisely. These gorgeous blue eyes are dramatically intensified by the purple color of the soft acrylic yarn. For further effect, the crochet shell edging of the cap also draws attention to her beautiful eyes.

Crochet baby hats can be made into any design.

What I remember of the crocheted hats that my grandmother made me was while they were nice, the cheap yarn she used sometimes felt like a Brillo pad. Thankfully, today knitters and crocheters have many types of yarn from which to choose.

When making this crochet baby hat, the designer choose a super-soft chunky yarn made from acrylic fiber. As you can see, the yarn itself reminds you of a stuffed teddy bear too. Not only cute, but it makes for a warm hat during cold weather. Cute and practical, you can have it both!
