Baby Bib

A lovely lady in my knitting group sent me this pattern for a Baby Bib. It is knit like a dishcloth with a neck strap added. I used velcro instead of buttons. The pattern is called “Grandmother’s Favorite Baby Bib”. I used the Sugar & Creme Stripes cotton yarn.

It is a free pattern – here.
I have copied it from her blog site to here for convenience sake or you can click link above and go to Merin’s site.

  1. I’ll be making a few of those bibs.

  2. I love the velcro idea–my next bib will definately use that instead of the buttons!
    I hope to see you Wednesday!

  3. Love the bib. I made a couple of similar ones last year. I’d been making washclothes and decided they would make great bibs, so I just added a 2 straps to one side and I had some cute bibs. But I love this idea stopping short on completing the washcloth and adding straps to the ended side. Really great. I will have to make one sometime. Seems like there’s babies everywhere these days needing bibs. 🙂

    • Glad you are going to try it!. I am expecting a new grand daughter any day now, so I will be making some while I’m helping to babysit. Not really feeling like it right now, my dad died last Sat. – still kinda blue. Let me know how they turn out for you. I will be adding to my blog when things settle down around here – I’ll add the one I will be making. Someone did a dishcloth that has “burp” knit on it…that would be cute. Linda
