Pattern Description:

Having all granddaughters, designing for dolls is so much fun. It makes me want to have dolls again too!

This sweet poncho and beret set will be perfect for any young lady's doll to wear for the cool Spring days coming up in the Northern Hemisphere or cool Autumn days in the Southern hemisphere.

This is an intermediate pattern only because of the provisional tubular cast on. This type of cast on gives the brim of the hat and neckline of the poncho a nice finished-looking edge.

Options are given for two different scalloped edges for the poncho and either I-cord bows for the poncho & beret or crocheted flowers for the poncho & beret. You choose!

I highly recommend Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic yarn for this project. It's soft and easy on the hands as well as easy to knit (and/or crochet).
