This pattern was inspired by Andrea’s (gibsongirl @ Ravelry) “Modern Baby Bib” Knit pattern. I worked up a crocheted variant with a simple scalloped edge. I've made a few versions - any machine washable worsted weight yarn will do.
• 1/2 skein / 25 grams cotton or acrylic worsted weight yarn
• Crochet hook: 3.75 mm (F)
• Yarn needle
• 1 button
In pattern, 8 sc and 10 rows = 2 inches
Ch 26, turn.
R1: Sc in second ch from hook and each ch across (25 sc). Ch 1, turn.
R2-28: Sc in each st across (25 sc). Ch 1, turn.
R29: Sc in each st across (25 sc). Ch 48, turn. [Start of neck strap.]
R30: Sc in second ch from hook and each subsequent ch. Continue working sc along side edge of bib. At lower edge, turn.
R31: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), skip first sc, dc into next sc, *ch 1, skip first sc, dc into each of next 2 sc; repeat from * until 2 sc remain. [Note: work dec-dc if needed to ensure that you end on a 2 dc-group.] Ch 3, ss into final sc. Ch 1, turn.
R32: Sc in sl and first 3 ch, sc in first dc, *skip dc, work 5 dc into ch 1 space, skip 2 dc, work 1 sc into next ch 1 space, skip dc; repeat from * to end. Fasten off, weave in loose ends.
Sew on button, block if needed.
My crochet projects have been on hold for the past few weeks. We moved on March 1st, and are finally unpacked (well, almost). I've started a few crochet projects for the house, including a series of crocheted doorstops to protect against the ocean breeze.
