Baby Bib Pattern. Free Crochet Pattern.

Here’s how it works.

I remember when my children were babies and I wished I had a pretty bib that was also functional. This baby bib pattern is very easy to crochet and a great stash buster. Durable and washable, it is the perfect crochet gift for young babies.

This bib will fit babies of approximately 6-months of age and older (it would have fit my son at 3 months though!). It still fits around my son’s neck and he is 3.5 years old now – so it would be perfect for toddlers too – you may wish to increase the length a bit though!

It is very easy to make it longer! I have included instructions at the end and as always if you have questions, just message me!

  3. Hi Helen, We start with 29 stitches. Then we work (1 flsc in nxt st, 1 blsc in next st) 7 times, then we work 3 stitches in the next stitch as (1 sc in the BL, 1 sc in the FL and 1 more sc in the BL),then (1 flsc in nxt st, 1 blsc in next st) 7 times; by the end of the row you have 31 stitches. We added 2 extra stitches in the center stitch. Hope this makes sense 🙂 Yes at the end of every row you will need to ch 1 and turn. The caps bit – I’m working on it. I had some changes done to the site font and mistakenly asked for the comments to use uppercase for ease but now we can’t tell if it is upper or lower so when it is sent through as a comment it is confusing! I had the same problem yesterday and it came out in all caps on the approved side and looked like I was shouting when I wasn’t! 🙂 Have a great week, Rhondda
