Free Pattern- "Cutie Bib"

Well my three month old is starting to drool! So I decided I should whip up some bibs for my little "cutie". I love to make my bibs with buttons, no fuzzy velcro and they're not easily ripped off by baby. Made from cotton yarn so they are easy to care for, just throw them in the washer.
I have made bibs before but the result was never consistent. I have made three bibs from this pattern.  I am pretty sure it works, but let me know if you have any problems.
Enjoy!
What You'll Need
Size I Hook
WW Cotton Yarn
Button (I used 19 mm buttons, size really isn't a big issue, as long as it fits nicely through the buttonhole)
Tapestry Needle for weaving in loose ends
sc- single crochet
ch- chain
sc2tog- single crochet 2 together
ss- slip stitch
Row 1: ch 14, 2sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 11 ch spaces, 2sc in last ch, ch1, turn. (15 sc)
Row 2: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 13 sc, 2sc in last sc, ch1, turn. (17 sc)
Row 3: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 15 sc, 2sc in last sc, ch1, turn. (19 sc)
Row 4-19: sc across, ch1, turn. (19 sc)
Now we will begin the first strap.
Row 1: sc in next 6 sc, ch1, turn. (6 sc)
Row 2: sc across. (6 sc)
Row 3: sc in next 4 sc, sc2tog, ch1, turn. (5sc)
Row 4: sc across, ch1, turn. (5 sc)
Row 5: sc in next 3 sc, sc2tog, ch1, turn. (4 sc)
Row 6: sc across, ch1, turn. (4 sc)
Row 7: sc in next 2 sc, sc2tog, ch1, turn. (3 sc)
Row 8-18: sc across, ch1, turn. (3 sc)
Row 19: sc across, finish off. (3 sc)
Now for the second strap!
Row 1: join yarn in last stitch on other side of bib. Ch1, sc in same stitch, sc in next 5 sc, ch1, turn. (6 sc)
Row 2: sc across, ch1, turn. (6 sc)
Row 3: sc in next 4 sc, sc2tog, ch1, turn. (5 sc)
Row 4: sc across, ch1, turn. (5 sc)
Row 5: sc in next 3 sc, sc2tog, ch1, turn. (4 sc)
Row 6: sc across, ch1, turn. (4 sc)
Row 7: sc in next 2 sc, sc2tog, ch1, turn. (3 sc)
Row 8-17: sc across, ch1, turn. (3 sc)
Row 18: sc, ch2, skip over middle sc, sc in last sc, ch1, turn.
Row 19: sc in first sc, sc in ch2 space, sc in last sc. (3 sc)
You can change colors here if you like.
Border: ch1, sc all the way around, put 3sc in each corner stitch, join to first sc with ss.
Weave in ends and attach button.

  3. I have been searching for a nice pattern that makes a normal shaped bib. This looks perfect! I also like the button style as opposed to ties. Can't wait to make one.

  10. This is a fabulous bib pattern. I wish I'd found it 2years ago when 2 of my children were expecting the arrival of new babies. I can't wait to whip up a few of them in preparation as I'm certain there will be more grandchildren. Thank you so much for offering this as a freebie pattern. Best wishes Linda
