Instructions for a little poncho, tea bag hat and the cutest leg warmers by customer request. The poncho fastens at the front with 4 buttons, so that when it starts to get a little bit tighter getting over the growing babies head, just use the front fastening to put it on, and you can get even more wear out of it! This set features a lacy shell pattern. There is a matching pull-on teabag hat and leg warmers that fold down at the top.

All my patterns are tested by independent knitters before they are released, so every effort is made so that they come to you error-free.
Although my patterns are strictly protected by copyright, which I ask you to respect, I am more than happy for any items made from my patterns to be sold.
