Teal Baby Set - Booties and Ruffle Hat - Free Knitting Pattern

I just fell in love with this yarn color when I saw it.  So brilliantly bright and really, isn't teal a great color for boys and girls???  (My husband would disagree and say it's much more male...) 

The ruffle hat and booties pattern is from Bernat.  I will post up the bootie pattern later, here is the pattern for the ruffle hat:
