I made a version of this owl crochet hat, but not for a baby I made mine for a teenager who is still crazy for owls. She loves it. The color combos can be changed around in so many different ways and this can be used for a girl or a boy. Looks simple enough to make. The most time-consuming part, I think, will be sewing on all the parts when the project is done.
