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.
