These pretty baby bibs are made with cotton yarn (which is absorbent).
 
They are a cute idea for a baby shower gift. 



 

Pretty Crochet Baby Bib in Cotton Yarn

The bib is worked in half treble crochet (htc). The ties are worked in double crochet (dc). UK Terminology

Using a 3.5mm hook and DK cotton yarn –

Make a foundation chain of 29 chain stitches

Turn, 1htc in 3rd chain from hook, 1htc in each chain to end, turn               (27sts)

Chain 2 (this counts as first htc), 12htc, 3htc in next st, 13htc, turn             (29sts)

Chain 2 (this counts as first htc), 13htc, 3htc in next st, 14htc, turn             (31sts)

Chain 2 (this counts as first htc), 14htc, 3htc in next st, 15htc, turn             (33sts)

Chain 2 (this counts as first htc), 15htc, 3htc in next st, 16htc, turn             (35sts)

Chain 2 (this counts as first htc), 16htc, 3htc in next st, 17htc, turn             (37sts)

Chain 2 (this counts as first htc), 17htc, 3htc in next st, 18htc, turn             (39sts)

Chain 2 (this counts as first htc), 18htc, 3htc in next st, 19htc, turn             (41sts)

Continue in the same manner until 18 rows have been worked – or until the bib is the length required

Add a simple shell border on the lower edge only - or on each side as well as the lower edge

For the ties  ~

Re-attach the yarn to the top corner and make a chain of 55 chain stitches

Turn, 1dc in each chain to end, (makes first tie)

Continue across the top of the bib making 1dc in each stitch across to the other top corner

Chain 55 chain stitches

Turn, 1dc in each chain to end of chain, (makes second tie)

Fasten off

  4. Oh how very nice! These baby bibs are absolutely perfect and they look so elegant. I didn't know that baby bibs can also be made with cotton yarn. I get intrigued with this kind of baby bibs. Among of all the baby bibs I've see this is the most perfect one. I can't help to watch it over and over again. Great Job! For sure many eyes will turn towards your toddler if she wear this kind of baby bibs.
