A Baby Bib that will keep them clean!

I love letting my kids feed themselves, but their clothes tend to get ruined every time they eat spaghetti. I feel in love with this towel Bib my brother gave me for one of my girl’s birthdays. It was a kitchen towel with a collar in it and it completely covered my baby.

I started looking for these bibs in the stores and could not find them. So I grabbed my yarn and hook and started designing one. This crochet baby bib will cover the entire front of your baby as well as their shoulders. The baby will need to work hard to get their clothes dirty.

How the Crochet Baby Bib is worked.

To crochet this baby bib we will start by making a ribbed collar. Then we will work into the side of the collar rows and make a yoke like you would do with a sweater. Now I know that sounds hard, but if you can count and work 3 stitches into one stitch you will be just fine.

Once our bib can cover the baby’s shoulders we will just extend on side of the yoke to make a bib. Make sure to check out the video tutorial or ask any questions below if you need help.

Stitches to Know

To create this crochet baby bib you will need to know how to chain, single crochet into the black loops and into the side of rows. Then the rest of the bib is made up of double crochet.

The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern

Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a print out of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted ad-free large font PDF version of the pattern. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag or basket.

I moved all the photos to the end of the PDF so you can reference them as you needed them and print just the pattern without using up as much ink. The Premium PDF version of the pattern can be purchased on Etsy of Ravelry.
